In response to the Air India disaster in 1985, where an unaccompanied bag contained a device, airlines became responsible for ensuring that in the event of a “no show” passenger, hold baggage that has been accepted from that passenger must not be allowed to travel on board the aircraft. If an unaccompanied bag is accepted, it must be subjected to rigorous security checks before acceptance. This process is referred to as Baggage Reconciliation.
Following the Pan Am 103 disaster, the UK undertook an in-depth review of aviation security and issued an “8 point plan” to establish tighter security standards. This plan includes the requirement for baggage reconciliation to be 100% reliable. In 1994 the DfT issued the “Triple A” (Accounting And Authorising) requirement which, redefined some of the basic security measures covering passengers and their baggage. Airlines are required to account for the status of every bag (including transfer bags) being loaded into the hold of an aircraft and for the details to be duly authorised by an appointed person.
