Counter Trafficking in Persons through Airlines and Airports
Why Aviation need Counter Trafficking Projects
We provide trafficking-related consultancy services for airports and airlines. This includes an onsite risk assessment and tailor-made solutions.
Everyone who works in an airport must be equipped to proactively identify human trafficking and how to effectively respond in a trauma-informed manner. Our comprehensive training is divided into two courses. One course is specifically for Passenger-facing Staff, who work with passenger documentation, while the other course is for non-passenger-facing staff like general airport staff, vendors, cleaners and porters. Both courses provide an in-depth insight into various types of vulnerabilities, like people smuggling, asylum-seeking, and the different types of human trafficking. FPA’s training includes solutions like data collation and mapping, why inter-stakeholder collaboration and why it is critical to establish a port-to-port safety net. Upon successful completion of the course, each graduate will receive a Red Flag Passport.
Monitoring is to deter human trafficking through airports and airlines. The 4-step process includes to identify, intercept, protect and process human trafficking in airport operations. We understand the time pressure of airport operations and serve port stakeholders as an extension of their responsibility. The size of the project and the number of teams is determined by an airport’s layout, the number of terminals and the multi-industry airport operations. Teams are trained to work on landside and airside, and how to work in a high-security environment. Airport Response Teams support ground handling service providers during check-in, boarding, and dismemberment processes.
Global Safety Network:
Vulnerability is a real threat to victims or survivors of human trafficking, and inadmissible passengers who are repatriated. The possibility of further exploitation or re-trafficking is very real and it is necessary to have measures in place to reduce these risks. It is priceless to have trusted persons in the ports of transit and destination ports repatriatees travel to.
