QANTAS IMPROVES SAFETY MEASURES AGAINST TERRORISM
Australian Qantas Airlines reinforces security measures on flights from the Philippines due to a terrorist threat. The airlines ranked the airport in Manila as risky because foreign terrorists – apparently from the so-called Islamic state – have occupied a city in the south of the country. More than 550 people died in the fights and more than 200,000 fled their homes.
Australian secret services warn that the Philippines began to be a risky area after a direct connection between Turkey and the Philippines was launched in May. Qantas therefore decided to react – the airport sent its own people for additional check-ins of luggage that islander passengers take on board.
“For understandable reasons, we can not say more about security measures than working closely with government and secret services to set the right security rules and measures.” said Qantas.
Australia also sent several border guards to Manila.
