Redline to provide sniffer dog certification in the UK

Redline has won a seven-year contract from the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to be the UK’s sole certifier and quality assurer of free running explosive detection dogs.

The certification and quality assurance process is set by the Department for Transport (DfT) and overseen by the CAA, which is responsible for ensuring that it operates effectively.

The DfT re-introduced its detection dog programme back in 2018 after ending their use in 2014.

Redline was purchased by charter firm Air Partner at the end of last year.
