New security measures including stricter passenger screening take effect today (Thursday 26th October) on all US-bound flights to comply with government requirements of the US Government.
In June, airlines were given 120 days to meet the new regulations which require additional checks on passengers.
The increased security measures may include short security interviews at check-in or at the boarding gates, or questionnaires handed out to passengers.
Today’s introduction of tighter screening procedures for all flights entering the US, has prompted concerns of delays for passengers.
Some airlines are advising passengers to check in earlier for flights, while others, including British Airways, are reassuring customers that flights will operate as normal.
