“Nothing Unusual” With Airport Security

Published July 10, 2012

The company which runs Keflavík Airport says they found nothing of note about security procedures in examining how two stowaways managed to get on an Icelandair plane, but they consider the matter “very serious”.
As reported, two asylum seekers from the Fit Hostel in Keflavík managed to board a plane bound for Denmark, but were discovered before the plane took off. The two had somehow managed to board an Icelandair plane bound for Copenhagen, and locked themselves in the toilet. During a routine inspection before boarding, the toilet was found locked, and security was called to the scene. The two young men were apprehended and taken into police custody, where they remain.
In a statement from Isavia, the company which runs Keflavík airport, Vísir reports that a thorough inspection was done of airport security procedures and found that nothing unusual was noted in how they were conducted. They believe the two stowaways were very well organised in their attempt, and Isavia say they are taking the matter very seriously.
Icelandair chairman Þórólfur Árnason told reporters that they had little to comment on the matter, apart from to say that they are waiting to hear what the police conclude from their investigation.
