Abstract. Aviation security refers to the state of an aviation system or organization in which the risks associated with aviation activities or directly supporting the operation of an aircraft are reduced and are at a manageable level. The most important direction in ensuring aviation security is to increase its level through the introduction of new, innovative technologies and technical means, simplifying and accelerating the procedures for checking air passengers. This article discusses innovative technologies and their role in ensuring aviation security. The novelty of the work lies in the use of new high-quality technologies that reduce the work of servicing passengers and improve safety. The reliability of the results obtained, the validity of scientific rules, conclusions and practical recommendations are confirmed by experiments and studies, as well as publications.
Key words: Airport, security, new technologies, stationary metal detectors, manual metal detector, gas analyzer.
