A place were planes land and get loaded with passengers, and.... other nefarious cargo.

An airport is a location from which flights take off and land. International airports provide useful venues for trying out social control measures, conditioning, surveillance technology and for data collection.


Why US Airports Are So Bad - CNBC

International airports have played a historical role in the global standardisation of surveillance and social control. Initially, this was centered on passengers transit across national borders, and involved passports, visas and customs checks. This has been developed into standardisation of products, such as suitcase locks (especially with the advent of the TSA), safety specifications, limits on capacities of batteries of laptops, cameras etc.

Why Airport Security Is So Bad In The U.S - CNBC

Airports have long had CCTV and Xray scanning of luggage. Since the "war on terror", surveillance has been dramatically extended, using the enemy image of "terrorism", to include microwave scanning of passengers, body heat detection (in connection with the SARS virus, in particular), collection of images including retinal scans, fingerprints, and DNA collection.

The TSA, rolled out after 9-11 is widely criticised for its contribution to the airport experience.


CNN Airport Network is a specifically tailored content designed to play at people waiting in airports.[1] Fox News reported that CNN paid US airports, on average, over $100,000/year, to show their output to waiting travellers.[2][3]


A editorial on the WSJ noted "Any effort to rebuild TSA and get airport security right in the U.S. has to start with two basic principles: First, the TSA's mission is to prevent a catastrophic attack on the transportation system, not to ensure that every single passenger can avoid harm while traveling. Much of the friction in the system today results from rules that are direct responses to how we were attacked on 9/11. But it's simply no longer the case that killing a few people on board a plane could lead to a hijacking. Never again will a terrorist be able to breach the cockpit simply with a box cutter or a knife. The cockpit doors have been reinforced, and passengers, flight crews and air marshals would intervene."[4]


ID Cards aren't really a problem for criminals to board planes according to the dozens of hijacks on 9-11 and the terror attacks in Europe during the 2010s has shown. Examples like the 2015-11 Paris attacks where all criminals were carrying suicide vests and IDs and not get caught by airport security have not been explained. Too many people board planes for 1 by 1 screening anyway, according to The Guardian, and there are always corrupt officials making official illegal passports.[5]

Other airports

Non passenger airports, such as those for the military, typically have much less scanning and monitoring technology. Some act as black sites for the illegal drug trade, notably Mena Arkansas.
