As an exclusive provider of aviation security management services to Emirates Airlines, Global Elite Group Inc., will open an office at the Seattle-Tacoma International airport.

Global will continue to expand operations in the U.S. as Emirates continues to open new gateways.

The Pacific Northwest is poised to take advantage of the growing demand for air cargo service to and from Asia, said analysts.

The office at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport follows Global’s expansion last month at DFW Airport. Operations begin on March 1, 2012.

The moves come after Emirates Airline & Group announced its expansion with six new gateways in the U.S. in order to deliver greater access to the airline’s vast global network. 

“As a company specializing in security services and management programs to airlines, we are thrilled to bring our customized approach to security to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. We have valued our long relationship with Emirates and their reliance on us, to maintain safety protocols, we don’t take this lightly,” explained


Global Elite will have an office on-site at the airport which will be open 24-hours a day to service the entire security needs of Emirates Airlines. Global has appointed, Kim Witter, as the operations manager at the facility which will have over 15 trained security professionals managing every aspect of security and working alongside the Emirates and TSA agents.

“We are an extra layer of protection to in-house personnel and government security workers. All our agents are TSA trained and certified to maintain seamless operations. We also deploy access control and surveillance security with built-in analytics to assist in the overall security process,” said Will McGuire, President and CEO for Global Elite Group Inc., based in Garden City, New York.


Global will be responsible for overseeing the day-to-day security operations, working and meeting with the airport authority and other government and regulatory officials. “When one of our airways clients moves into a new region and launch flight services, we perform all the regulatory security functions for the carrier,” explains Lucia Oswald, Vice President of Operations for Global Elite.

Global Elite Group Inc. is an international aviation, personal protection and asset security company with 15 offices in the U.S. and 6 international locations.

UPS today announced diluted earnings per share of $1.32 for the third quarter 2014, a 13.8% improvement over the prior year period. Operating profit increased 8.3%, resulting from balanced growth across all three segments.

The Department of Transportation’s Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) reported this week that U.S. trade with its North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) partners Canada and Mexico increased 4.4 percent from August 2013 to August 2014 at $100.6 billion.

As expected, global trade dipped from August to September but still saw annual gains, according to data issued this week by Panjiva, an online search engine with detailed information on global suppliers and manufacturers.

Transportation and logistics merger and acquisition (M&A) activity in the third quarter saw annual gains, which were driven by smaller deals in the trucking logistics, shipping, and passenger air sectors, according to data issued in the Intersections report by PwC this week.

With the holidays rapidly approaching, it appears retailers are not quite done getting inventory set up and on the shelves in time for what is expected to be a fairly active shopping season. That much was evident based on recent data for September volumes issued by the Port of Los Angeles (POLA) and the Port of Long Beach (POLB).
