We as a partner of the Swiss airports Zurich and Geneva

Our two national airports are considered the Swiss gateway to the world in the heart of Europe and are well networked internationally, nationally, and regionally. Both airports regularly receive awards for their excellent services, short connecting flights, friendly staff, clean infrastructure, reliable processes, and other quality features.

Around 50 million people will have departed, arrived, or changed planes here in 2019, making the airports the most important meeting place in their region.

Behind this achievement are thousands of employees who work with over 400 airport partners every day to ensure that every stay is a positive experience for passengers and visitors.

We make our contribution and are partners in a comprehensive security network.


Our security employees

The employees of Protectas Aviation Security AG make a significant contribution to security at our Swiss airports through their daily work at the security checkpoints and their extensive expertise and know-how.

All of our employees who are assigned a security task at airports in Switzerland first undergo a reliability check and must be trained, approved/certified and recertified every two years in accordance with the requirements of the responsible authority (Federal Office of Civil Aviation/BAZL).

One of the main tasks of our employees is to use the technical equipment and aids available, such as X-Ray X-ray machines and ETD (Explosive Trace Detection), to prevent prohibited items from entering the non-public airport area.

All our work steps and the associated control methods are in conformity with the valid EU regulations, the NASP (National Aviation Security Program) of the Federal Office for Civil Aviation/BAZL and the process instructions of the airport operators derived from these.
