This paper is intended as a starting point for policy makers considering the strategic, legal and security issues created in the areas of new passenger data, wireless networking and common-use information technology (IT) equipment at airports. It recommends that airports be mindful of various practical legal solutions and protective measures from the outset, because new IT systems can give rise to complex legal issues that will influence day-to-day operations. In many areas new IT is changing how airports operate and data flows between stakeholders are more important than ever. Airport managers must understand the opportunities and also the risks created by the new technologies. Issues, once identified, can be addressed by airports taking measures internally, and in airport supplier and partner contracts.
