Business aviation, long exempt from the government security rules applied to airlines, will begin finding things different, and perhaps more onerous, at certain European airports. Some, particularly in Denmark and Germany, are already requiring aircrews to be present at security checkpoints while passengers undergo screening, so that the crews can declare that they have no objection to items passengers are carrying aboard, even in hold baggage.

““When I made the film The Invention of Lying, they gave me a private jet for getting back and forth between New York and London. I thought, ‘I will never use it’ but I ended up using it every weekend. You turn up, right, and the airport is completely empty. I mean, there’s just someone at the desk and then the pilot, who says, ‘Are you ready to go?’ and you say, ‘Don’t you want to see my passport?’ and he goes, ‘Oh yeah, I suppose I’d better.’” ”
