THE POSITION OF THE AIRPORT OPERATOR WITHIN THE SCOPE OF ADMINISTRATIVE MEASURES IN DEFENSE AGAINST EXTERNAL DANGERS IN AIR TRAFFIC

The concept "external dangers" comprises all premeditated actions which interfere with the safety of the air traffic, unless these actions are directly related to technical operational procedures. Such actions include the hijacking of aircraft, the taking of hostages, and bomb threats against aircraft and installations serving the air traffic. Legal regulations dealing with such actions in West Germany are discussed, taking into account the obligations of the airport operator on the basis of these regulations. Attention is given to the obligation of the airport operator to provide and maintain rooms required for supervision measures, obligations related to a general responsibility of the airport operator for operational safety, and the right of the aviation authorities to interfere directly with the operation of the airport by an enactment of suitable administrative acts.
