Ports & Airports

In the global economy, international trade and travel is reliant upon the security of our vast network of ports and airports.

At G4S, we know that the key to releasing wider benefits for our clients is to always look at the overall picture to consider solutions that transform performance.

G4S works with clients to understand the specific security issues they face. We design solutions to meet those issues - bringing together our expertise in logistics, technology, project management and managing the world’s biggest security personnel work force.

We help our clients to not only safeguard people, facilities and reputations, but also to improve their end-user experience, reducing costly hold ups and providing superior customer service - delivering a stable, confident environment in which trade can flourish.



Ports are vital for national and commercial security.

Governments are demanding ever-higher compliance standards; the economy demands operational efficiencies; threats from pirates, terror attacks and smuggling are also key challenges.

G4S understands the industry and works with ports in many countries. We are able to use our experience, our expertise in logistics, technology, managing the world’s biggest security personnel workforce and the knowledge derived from providing security solutions in diverse regulatory environments around the world to really make a difference.

We have the sector-specific experience combined with a clear view of the ‘bigger picture’ issues which means our clients benefit from improved asset protection, increased operational efficiency, better regulatory compliance and stronger business continuity.


Airports and airlines operate on the front line of global security challenges.

Alongside the ever-present threat of international terrorism, the aviation sector faces new issues as a result of the recent global economic crisis.

Reduced passenger numbers, increased running costs and price-cutting initiatives have all impacted the bottom line, meaning airports and airlines are looking for new ways to offer more while spending less.

G4S understands the aviation sector and understands the challenges, which means we can provide solutions that not only meet the challenges, but transform performance.

In this context, we’ve helped our airport and aviation sector clients to respond to both current challenges and future opportunities. We’ve transformed their performance by reviewing operating processes to find smarter, safer and more profitable ways of working.

Our solutions enable clients to protect their reputations, reduce costs, increase revenue, and ensure the safety and comfort of travellers worldwide.
