Since this summer, the United States Government Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has begun implementing new rules aimed at tightening security at airports and for airlines and its passengers. "These new measures will impact all flights from airports that serve as last points of departure locations to the United States". Some say they will conduct screening interviews at check-in counters; provide questionnaires for all US-bound passengers and conduct detailed inspection of personal electronic devices.
"We are asking customers to show up at the airport early".
The move comes after it was reported earlier this week that the USA government plans to temporarily delay the processing of most refugees from 11 countries identified as "high-risk". He said, "What we have seen is very odd ..."
The changes come following the conclusion of a 120-day ban on most refugees ordered by US President Donald Trump to allow a review of vetting processes. Previously, laptops had been banned in the cabin on flights originating in eight counties in the Middle East and North Africa. Those without check-in baggage can proceed to the boarding gate directly "as early as possible", where they will also be subject to a short security interview, the airline said.
New security measures including stricter passenger screening take effect on Thursday on all US -bound flights to comply with government requirements aimed at responding to threats of hidden explosives, airlines said.
Many global airlines had concerns about the new regulations.
Virgin Atlantic has said the new rules won't disrupt customers. The airline said passengers would also have short security interviews and it has advised travelers to arrive three hours before departure.
The new rules also come at the end of a 120-day deadline for airlines to meet new U.S. regulations following the ban on laptops in airplane cabins of some Mideast airlines being lifted.
AAPA director-general Andrew Herdman told reporters at an industry conference in Taipei yesterday: "Essentially, the United States requirements mean you have to provide pre-check-in screening of passengers and that may involve interviewing passengers, and that involves training a lot of front-line staff, either your own or an appointed agent, to carry out such activities".
HIV/AIDS health funding would also be prioritised for those who need substance abuse treatment, officials said. Those people did not have a choice to, as Trump said, "not to take drugs, just not to take them".
