    MOSCOW, FEBRUARY 6, 2004 (RIA Novosti) -- Airlines are tightening security in the wake of today's terrorist act in Moscow's underground. This was disclosed to reporters at a press conference here today by First Deputy Russian Transport Minister Alexander Neradko, who also heads the State Civil Aviation Service.

    Organisational and preventive measures will be implemented, Neradko noted.

    According to Neradko, the Transport Ministry is quite worried because terrorists are targeting transport at rush hours more and more often.

    In this connection, top civil aviation executives are studying the possibility of setting up an additional demarcation line, which would prevent anyone from bringing suspicious looking objects into airport terminals and onboard passenger jets, too. "We are already taking certain measures," Neradko said in conclusion.
