Security measures play not the last role in promoting effective organisational performance in airlines, and it is more than important to reconsider how organisation theory and the basic security/ safety measures work for the benefit of successful airline/ airport performance.
Organisation theory and its principles create preconditions necessary for airport and airline operators to succeed in their operations: management in general and aviation management, in particular, makes it possible for operators to achieve their business goals in an effective and efficient manner (Daft & Marcic 2008). More often than not, management becomes important because it provides organisations in the aviation industry with an opportunity to integrate the existing management functions and capabilities with their basic operations and to balance their goals and objectives with limited resources. The four elements of successful management comprise functions, roles, skills, and ideas. These elements should be reconsidered in the context of airport and airline management.
Functions in management usually refer to what managers are expected to do and do to help their organisations achieve the major goals and objectives; “the four basic management functions include planning, organizing, leading, and controlling” (Pride, Hughes & Kapoor 2009). Planning is often referred to as the first and the basic function in management and implies that to succeed in their performance, organisations should establish their goals, mission, objectives; it would be fair to say that everything in organisations depends on planning and its effectiveness.

Organisations can use both strategic and
