Description

In the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, The Morning Call performed an analysis of FAA security information for smaller airports, such as Lehigh Valley International airport. Their investigation found 20 security violations at the airport from January 1996 to September 2000, which resulted in 79 citations. The citations stemmed from problems such as incorrect signs in secure areas to passengers with weapons. The findings showed that while LVIA had a significant amount of security violations and citations, in comparison with airports of similar size, LVIA received less "failure-to-detect" citations then nine other airports of similar traffic. Common problems found were lack of proper security and detection technology, quality of security personnel and the danger of on the job boredom
