Abstract

Airports are crucial channels of mobility for the global citizens of the twentyfirst century. They are points of entry and exit for tourists, business persons, workers, students and of course, for some refugees as well. The scale of operations is huge international passenger travel increased twelvefold in the second half of the twentieth century Urry, 2000 50 and the vast majority of this is accounted for in air travel. In the USA alone there are two million daily airtravelers on 20,000 flights Gottdiener,2001 1. Airports are placeless sites of temporary sojourn, airlock chambers for nomadic executives or sunseekers. But they have profound social and political significance, particularly in personal data handling.
