News Summary: Airline execs urge security overhaul


CUTTING THE LINES: Airport security needs a radical overhaul to avoid more disgruntled passengers, longer lines and overwhelmed terminals, airline executives said at a global aviation conference in Abu Dhabi.

FUTURE CHECK: Tony Tyler, CEO of the International Air Transport Association, predicted that by 2020 governments will be using a "checkpoint of the future" where passengers can race though without removing clothing or taking liquids out of bags.

RISK RULES: Tyler is optimistic that today's "one-size-fits all approach" can be replaced with a system based on individual passenger risk. The industry hopes to test the concept starting in 2014.
