It can be an infuriating experience dealing with the security checks in airports, the long lines, and especially the TSA. Do all of these extra security measures actually make us safer though? According to statistics from the Aviation Safety Network, the answer might be yes. The number of airplane hijackings has decreased substantially in recent years, correlating significantly with the increased security measures implemented in airports.
