IATA launches SRIP to manage security risks

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has announced the launch of incident reporting tool, the Security Risk Intelligence Portal (SRIP), to help airlines mitigate and manage security risks, the company said.

The portal also includes the latest state and airport restrictions and requirements imposed as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.

SRIP was developed to improve real-time information-sharing among airlines, airports and air navigation service providers (ANSPs). Information shared by airlines will be augmented by open-source data (notices, warnings, bulletins, prohibitions, media reports) to provide a comprehensive view of security, biosafety and operational incidents in the vicinity of airports.

To further improve security risk mitigation, IATA is working with States and the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) to improve levels of security information-sharing. This is particularly critical in conflict zones as demonstrated with the tragic downing of Ukraine International Airlines flight PS752 earlier this year.

The SRIP platform was developed by, IATA´s strategic partner MedAire.

IATA (International Air Transport Association) represents some 290 airlines comprising 82% of global air traffic.
