Airport Security Increases
Holiday travelersÃ‚Â may find longerÃ‚Â lines at security, thanks to all the passengersÃ‚Â crowding into the airports, and because of October’sÃ‚Â airport security breach;Ã‚Â that has meant changes in the way airline cargo is screened.
And it’s also meant changes for passenger screening, too.

Passing Passenger Screenings
According to the Department of Homeland Security, airport screening measures for passengers now involves both visible and discreet “enhanced airport security measures.”
Following are a few travel tips to remember to get through airline baggage and passenger screenings with as little hassle as possible:
- Expect the unexpected. The TSA will use a “mix of airport security layers” to improve safety that may include hand-swabbing in the gate area,Ã‚Â bomb-sniffing dogs and increased bodyÃ‚Â pat-downs.
- Be calm. Don’t get upset if a TSA officer asks you to do something a little different. Remember, patience will be rewarded–and help the line move faster.
- To body scan–or not to body scan. If you decline a full body scan request, be prepared to undergo a thorough pat-down.
