Elimination of security checks at airports is something unusual effect, you know when the various airports in the world who have strict checks for their passengers. It is different because it is present separate consideration of the airport management in the city of Campbeltown.

They behave differently to the passengers at the airport, as written on the site Independent, the removal of these security checks is the first time for nearly half a century of airports in the country United Kingdom imposed a tight security system.

It is appropriate checks carried out on passengers and goods brought in, such as the review of the site CNN Indonesia, February 2, because it makes you be surprised if you see a passenger can freely carry their goods.

A Loganair flight 6844 departing from Campbeltown to Glasgow, got a very different atmosphere, when all the passengers, about 15 people from the plane to free walk, and none of their belongings were searched by airport security officers.

Despite the lack of freedom for the air passengers to more freely down with open hearts, they still got the obligation to comply with safety, so it remains prohibited from carrying sharp objects, firearms, or more than 100 milliliters of liquid still valid.

As for the tourists find comfort as a guest in the city, they only make oral statements at the airport that they do not carry any of the prohibited items.

For airport operators, Highlands and Islands Airports (HIAL) in the official announcement, it is a new history for the British since the first flight scheduled enacted in the early 1970s.

"These new rules have been agreed and approved by the Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation. They keep putting the safety and security of passengers as the priority of every trip."

And can be expected if such a policy would be opposition, for example, from Philip Baum, aviation security experts. He assumed a routine inspection and security predictions tend to be 'enemies' of effective security.

Many opinions present a new look at the situation that occurred. However, excited reaction of the passengers, including from Claire Ross, the rule is fun for them.

"Looks good to me. It was so much fun. It's just a little flight for local people."
