Big changes in screening

By Administrator |

The New York Times claims to have obtained an advance copy of a five-page summary of new security screening policies to be adopted at airports by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).

As predicted in The Business last week, the TSA is introducing new random searches, new personal searches and ending its bans on the carriage of small scissors and certain other items in carry-on hand luggage.
The new changes are expected to come into force on December 20. Kip Hawley, Assistant Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security is due to make a speech on these planned changes shortly. One of the main aims of the new changes is to make the search and security procedure less predictable for would-be terrorists.
