Redline, an Air Partner company and a provider of global security solutions, continues to win business with airport customers as they scale up operations in anticipation of increased international travel. Doncaster Sheffield Airport has signed a new three-year contract for a digital Security Management System (SeMS), while Liverpool John Lennon Airport has renewed its SeMS contract for an additional three years following the success of the tool over the past two years. Redline's SeMS focuses on all aspects of security activity, supporting management at all levels within an organisation. New operating environment All security tasks, such as quality assurance activity, training performance and audits, are fed into the system, instantly highlighting any exposed vulnerabilities. This allows managers to effectively assess and manage risk in an ever-changing threat environment. These contracts add to Redline's already impressive track record this year, which also includes business wins with Edinburgh Airport and Teesside International Airport. This allows managers to effectively assess and manage risk in an ever-changing threat environment Mark Briffa, CEO of Air Partner, said: "It is a busy and important period for airports as they prepare for increasing passenger numbers, and we are very pleased to be supporting them as they scale up and bolster their security operations. Our ever-growing number of airport customers is testament to our industry-leading product offering and we look forward to helping them all adapt to the new operating environment.” Security management system Paul Mason, Managing Director of Air Partner's Safety & Security division, added: "We are continuing to see a good level of demand for Redline’s services and products, particularly our best-in-class digital Security Management System. Our team looks forward to working closely with Doncaster Sheffield and Liverpool John Lennon airports to optimise their security processes.” In a demonstration of its commitment to maintaining the delivery of key aviation security training in the COVID-19 environment, Redline also hosted the first Virtual International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Crisis Management Workshop last week (7-11 June) for 13 state-sponsored delegates from across the ICAO European and North Atlantic Region. This milestone was achieved through close cooperation between Redline and ICAO’s Implementation Support and Development Section (Security) to convert the classroom workshop to a virtual format.
Redline, an Air Partner company and a provider of global security solutions, has recently secured six business wins with both UK and international customers, totaling in excess of £1 million in revenues. Customers include international airports, public transport operators, regulatory bodies, and government support agencies. In a demonstration of continued customer trust in Redline's services, four of these six contracts were renewals or extensions. This includes a three-year contract renewal by Edinburgh Airport for Redline's x-ray threat image recognition training (TIRT) system. Included in the new work is a two-year contract with Teesside International Airport for a digital Security Management System (SeMS). Advanced TIRT system Redline is seeing increased demand for its security solutions as airports start to scale up operations, including for its user-friendly and technically advanced TIRT system, which has been designed to finetune x-ray image screeners' ability to detect even the smallest components of viable threats. Meanwhile, its proprietary SeMS, which allows managers to effectively assess and manage risk in an ever-changing threat environment, is also gaining good traction with customers. Launched training academy NSSA's new name reflects the fact that the academy now also provides Baines Simmons safety training In order to assist businesses across the aviation industry as they plan for the return of international travel, Air Partner has also recently launched its newly branded National Safety & Security Academy (NSSA) in Doncaster, which was previously the National Security Training Centre (NSTC). The NSSA's new name reflects the fact that the academy now also provides Baines Simmons safety training in addition to Redline's security courses. Digital SeMS Commenting on Redline's appointment, Phil Forster, Managing Director at Teesside International Airport, said, "The airport is on an exciting journey of transformation and growth, with Redline playing a key part in our future success.

We look forward to welcoming customers old and new to our newly re-branded National Safety & Security Academy, where we now offer safety and security training from Baines Simmons and Redline under one roof."
