Ricky Fiander: There has been some emotion about costs, quite rightly in the present climate. What is not often known is that cargo operators such as us have always paid for our screening staff, technology, training and vetting. The difference in the transferring of costs is about the writing of policy and compliance. I have made a rough calculation of what that means to us. It is down to four decimal points of our operating costs. Any additional cost is not good, but as long as it is proportionate, I do not think it is an issue.
