SNP Security (SNP), a Certis company, announced today that it has been awarded the contract to provide passenger and baggage screening services at Adelaide Airport for three years. SNP has commenced its operations for passenger and baggage screening services at Adelaide Airport starting 18 March 2019.

Adelaide Airport is currently the fifth-largest domestic airport and sixth-largest international airport in Australia. It is the aviation gateway to South Australia and processes more than 8 million passengers annually.

SNP Security’s experience and expertise is well-recognised throughout Australia’s aviation industry; SNP has provided world class aviation security screening, guarding, and response services at Sydney Airport for 50 years. Adelaide Airport is a rapidly expanding airport that will become a popular transit point for both domestic and international travel.

SNP was selected based on meeting the stringent selection criteria; demonstrated by its ability to achieve high standards of performance, safety and customer service through best practice methods and systems. SNP will support the Adelaide community by extending access to its world-class training, internationally recognised aviation security credentials, and technology-led security solutions.

As part of Certis Group, Asia’s leading advanced integrated security services provider, SNP is able to access Certis’ Ops-Tech capabilities to develop and deploy new mobile technology tailored to Adelaide Airport’s own screening station requirements. The new system will deliver improved operational efficiencies, enhanced user experience and analytics capabilities.

The Certis Group offers clear differentiation for the Australian Aviation market. The addition of Adelaide Airport into Certis’ Australian Aviation portfolio positions it as a leading provider of security in the local aviation market.  Tom Roche, Senior Managing Director of Certis Australia commented, “As a fast growing major airport, Adelaide Airport is an important win for our business. We look forward to leveraging our 50 years of aviation security experience and enhancing it with Certis’ proven advanced technology capabilities. We look forward to partnering with Adelaide Airport to deliver superior security services.”
