New Security Measures for US Bound Flights

Countries and their airports around the world were told by the Trump administration to follow a certain diktat of security protocols or risk their airlines from being prohibited from entering the United States. Currently, the TSA also requires U.S. domestic airline travelers to remove all electronic items larger than mobile phones such as tablets, e-readers and video game consoles from carry-on baggage for screening. In the recent past, an electronics ban was put in place. It was then lifted in July. This could still be reinstated on a case by case basis if airlines and airports did not boost security per the regulations imposed.

However, that hasn’t put an end to the woes of international travelers. With a view to protect air travel and secure the borders of the US, more stringent security protocols are being implemented that will affect 325,000 airline passengers on about 2,100 commercial flights arriving daily in the United States, on 180 airlines from 280 airports in 105 countries. From here on, all passengers on in-bound flights to the United States will be put through an additional round of screening in the form of one-to-one interviews aimed at identifying threats of hidden explosives onboard passengers in airlines headed to the United States.
