The chief executive of the Duesseldorf airport, Christoph Blume, said in a German daily newspaper on Tuesday that grouping passengers into different categories of risk could put an end to the ever-growing number of security checks.
"Every new incident leads to further controls and security measures. This results in a race to upgrade equipment that at some point will reach their technological and operating limits," Blume told the Rheinische Post.
"This way (through profiling), control systems could be more effectively employed for the well-being of all participants," he said.
The Duesseldorf airport CEO's proposal mirrors similar plans unveiled by airline carriers in December.
Blume, who will also serve as president of the German airport industry lobbying association ADV starting in January, also lent his support to the use of full-body scanners currently being tested at the Hamburg airport.
