The origin of airport security although the first aircraft hijacking occurred in 1931, it was not until the end of 1950 that the history of airport security inspections began.
Despite warnings from professionals, the threat has not received enough attention and modern precautions cannot be taken.
By the end of 1960, the hijackings were on the rise, eventually leading
Record 82 on 1969.
Most of these involve demands for money or political goals.
The first terrorist attack occurred on a Cuban flight on 1976, killing 73 people.
Airlines and airports around the world have begun to carry out more prominent security checks, especially in the United States and Israel.
Most of these measures involve metal detectors, X-
Ray machines and potential inspections of private personnel employed as safety officers.

Over the years, the prevention of hijacking has become a standard operating procedure, and the safety of airlines has also focused on other forms of criminal activity.
With the escalation of the 1980-generation drug war, preventing illicit drug trafficking has become a major focus. Drug-

Shutdown procedures help reduce the transportation of these chemicals and other contraband.
Nevertheless, during this time, the main role of security personnel in the United States and around the world was limited to law enforcement by private companies and occasional law enforcement personnel.
After the incident of September 11, 2001, the history of airport security has undergone earth-shaking changes.
When the terrorists hijacked four aircraft and sent three of them into large aircraft, killing thousands of people, governments around the world adopted new procedures.
In the United States, this led to the establishment of the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA)
A government agency responsible for the inspection of all passengers at the airport.
There are new rules about what can and cannot be brought on the plane.
Box cutters and certain other objects that were previously portable are now confiscated.
Plus, new-

In the years after the attacks at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, attempts by other terrorists also prompted changes in airport security checks.
On December 22, 2001, Richard Reid tried to destroy a passenger ship from Paris to Miami with his explosives-filled shoes.
In response, passengers were forced to take off their shoes while flying on the plane.
In 2006, British law enforcement foiled a plot to use a liquid combination to destroy the plane, prompting officials to ban more than a certain volume of liquid on the plane.
Similarly, on Christmas Day 2009, Umar Farouk Abdul Mutalab attempted to bomb the flight from Amsterdam to Detroit.
He sneaked the bomb into his underwear.
After the incident, many airports began to install full-body scanners.
Although airport security history begins with a simple attempt to prevent political factions and individuals from controlling aircraft for personal gain, modern initiatives are more focused on protecting passengers and infrastructure from damage.
However, as the war against terrorism and crime continues to change, it is only a matter of time before the airport security check history is added another chapter.
