SYDNEY http://www.floridapanthersteamstore.com/adidas-jamie-mcginn-jersey , July 31 (Xinhua) -- As Australian authorities ramp up security measures at airports across the country, a leading Australian aviation expert has warned that it's very difficult to balance safety concerns with convenience of travel because "we can't balance it."
"If we know there might be a threat, if we know there might be an attack coming, then we have to go all the way," Ronald Bishop from Central Queensland University told Xinhua on Monday.
After a plan to bring down a passenger plane was thwarted by the Australian Federal Police on Saturday during five dramatic raids at properties across Sydney http://www.floridapanthersteamstore.com/adidas-james-reimer-jersey , law enforcement agencies around the country have stepped up security measures at all major airports.
The result has seen long queues and extensive waiting periods for interstate and international travellers.
Domestic travellers have been told to arrive at least two hours prior to their flights, in order to allow enough time to pass through airport security screenings, with international travellers instructed to turn up three hours prior.
Australia's Border Protection Minister Peter Dutton told local media that "It may be that we need to look at the security settings at our airports - in particular our domestic airports - for an ongoing, enduring period."
As well as increased personal and more stringent baggage checks, Bishop believes authorities will be enacting measures such as slowing down the X-ray process http://www.floridapanthersteamstore.com/adidas-ian-mccoshen-jersey , increasing swab testing for explosives and employing greater behavioural awareness targeting, in order to find any possible loopholes that can be exploited.
"Other than that, a lot of the measures would be driven by intelligence data or some information that they gathered during the arrest process and they may be looking for something from that," Bishop said.
Due to the recent spate of terror attacks in Britain and France, and the extremely high security protocols around U.S. travel restrictions http://www.floridapanthersteamstore.com/adidas-henrik-borgstrom-jersey , Bishop said terrorist groups are probably looking for targets that appear soft and trying to "test the water, to see if they could pull an attack off."
"I think we will see more stringent security measures moving forward and what will be interesting is how the public react to that, but I think it's really good that we are doing this."
No further details of the alleged perpetrators have been confirmed by the Australian Federal Police, but local media have reported that the four men arrested are Khaled and Mahmoud Khayat, and Khaled and Abdul Merhi http://www.floridapanthersteamstore.com/adidas-evgenii-dadonov-jersey , who are believed to be two father-and-son pairs.
Local reports also claim the men planned to disguise a bomb within a kitchen meat grinder and smuggle the device aboard a flight to Dubai.
Although the men have not formally been charged, legally they can remain in custody for a prolonged period of time under special terrorism powers.

The ban on movies featuring actors convicted of crimes has hurt several upcoming releases filmed before the arrests. Xu Fan reports.
No insiders dared nine months ago to guess if the films tainted by their actors' drug and sex scandals would still play at theaters this summer.
Now, we know many will. But not in their original forms.
Versions of several flicks with the offending actors edited out will hit theaters this month and in August.
The State Administration of Press http://www.floridapanthersteamstore.com/adidas-derek-mackenzie-jersey , Radio, Film and TV issued a ban last fall on celebrities who use drugs or hire sex workers from appearing in films, on TV or in comparable media.
It rocked Chinese showbiz and seemed a career-ender for several fallen stars.
Some of the "tainted" upcoming films shot new scenes with new actors to replace the disgraced ones, while others simply deleted scenes showing them.
The upcoming live-actionanimated movie Monster Hunt, which was initially scheduled to be released in February and is now slated for July 16 http://www.floridapanthersteamstore.com/adidas-denis-malgin-jersey , deleted all scenes showing Taiwan actor Kai Ko, who was arrested in Beijing for drug use in August and later released after a 14-day detention.
The 24-year-old idol, who shot to fame with the 2011 hit rom-com You Are the Apple of My Eye, was replaced by mainland actor Jing Boran. Ko, who has recently been attempting to stage a career comeback http://www.floridapanthersteamstore.com/adidas-connor-brickley-jersey , has reportedly lost 19 advertisement contracts and watched his income shrivel.
The movie's director, Raman Hui, who's also co-director of DreamWorks' Shrek The Third, tells China Daily he was stunned when he heard the news.
"Nearly 80 percent of the special effects were completed. It was like making the same product the second time," he says http://www.floridapanthersteamstore.com/adidas-colton-sceviour-jersey , sighing, after the first screening for media in Shanghai last week.
Bill Kong, the movie's Hong Kong-based producer, reveals replacing Ko initially cost the big-budget title an extra 70 million yuan ($11 million)－a sum that snowballed 350 million yuan and another five months. This forced him to "bet every cent".
Another affected film is veteran director Chen Kaige's first martial arts flick, Monk Comes Down the Mountain. The 250 million yuan movie originally starred Jackie Chan's son Jaycee Chan. The younger Chan was arrested with Ko http://www.floridapanthersteamstore.com/adidas-alex-petrovic-jersey , a close friend, in his.
