The use of equipment supplied by the US TSA should help to better meet the security challenges facing Egyptian airports, and prepare them for the growth prospects of the coming years.

The US Transportation Security Administration and Egypt have announced a partnership that will see the US government agency supply the North African country with modern airport security equipment. The US will also provide the technical support and training needed to improve the security capabilities of Egypt’s civil aviation system.

The use of this equipment should also help to reduce passenger waiting times and facilitate procedures. The agreements signed also provide for the supply of the “support and expertise” needed to refurbish terminal 3 at Cairo international airport.

Egypt’s airports have the highest passenger traffic on the continent, due to their high tourist flows, which explains the constant pressure and recurring security challenges at these hubs. In 2023, Egyptian airports welcomed almost 47 million passengers. 

Among other things, these contributions should help the country to cope better with the future constraints that will result from the strong growth forecast for the aviation sector.
