Security

Marginal

A Security Director, with Chief Security Officers assisting him at various airports, heads the security function in CAAB. The Chief Security Officers at the respective airports are directly responsible for the security there. Apart from this security is also provided by the Government of Bangladesh since airports fall under sensitive installations of the country.

Armed security personnel drawn from various agencies of the government are deployed at the entrances to the airports as well as on the runways and parking bays.
No serious lapses in security have been reported which is an indicator that security measures at all airports in Bangladesh are quite adequate.
