S. air carrier flights operated overseas and international flights bound for the United States, particularly those with a large number of American and Israeli citizens on board. On August 29, 1969, a young Palestinian woman named Leila Khaled became the face of international terrorism when she and an accomplice from the PFLP hijacked a TWA flight from Rome, Italy to Athens, Greece with continuing service to Tel Aviv, Israel, diverting the airplane to Damascus, Syria. The hijackers blew up the nose section of the airplane, and they held two Israeli passengers for more than 40 days.

However, further raising federal ticket taxes, already set at 8%, was an unpopular option. The easiest mechanism for passing the security cost along to passengers was to make the screening and law enforcement functions the responsibility of the airlines and the airports, and have them recover the costs in the form of passenger head taxes and customer surcharges. President Nixon was clear in his resolve to veto any measure that would create a federal aviation police force to carry out these functions, thus compelling the House of Representatives to come up with an alternative to the Senate-passed bill.

These requirements, which became formally ratified as part of the Tokyo Convention of 1963, were considered a first step in addressing international cooperation in preventing and deterring hijackings, but it did not address protocols or arrangements for dealing with those that committed acts of aerial piracy. The work of ICAO that began in earnest in December 1968 set out to address issues of jurisdiction over and handling of individuals who carry out hijackings. This work culminated in the ratification of the Hague Convention of 1970 for the Suppression of Unlawful Seizure of Aircraft on December 16, 1970, three months after the Dawson’s Field hijackings.
