“Through its security division, Emirates works with government agencies and organizations including the International Air Transport Association, IATA, the US Overseas Security Advisory Council, OSAC, and United Nations Office on Drug and Crimes, UNODC, on efforts to improve awareness of human trafficking and co-operate on effective response strategies within the air transport industry.

“Recognizing that the frontline employees at the airport and onboard flights are uniquely placed to look out for this type of crime, Emirates has for several years invested in training programmes to help its airport and crew workforce to be aware of this crime, and give them the tools to identify and report suspected cases of human trafficking to the appropriate law enforcement organizations.

“At Emirates’ hub at Dubai International Airport, a team of aviation security personnel received special training from the embassy partners on how to spot potential human traffickers while checking travel documents and conduct passenger profiling and behavioural analysis,” the company said.
