New Security Measures at all Airports

E Airlines US NEWS

Today the News of New screenings for US-bound passengers on global airlines was announced.  This means that anyone who travels will be inconvenienced by having to arrive early and go through the new security system now in place at all airports.  This announcement came after the Trump administration previously rolled out a laptop ban and travel bans that have thrown the international travel industry into disarray.

Associated Press announced 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. The Airlines contacted Reuters to find that the new measures could include short security interviews with passengers at check-in or the boarding gate, flashing concerns over flight delays and extended processing time.

According to CNBC, the new measures will affect 325,000 airline passengers on about 2,000 commercial flights arriving daily in the United States, on 180 airlines from 280 airports in 105 countries.

Steve Chang, SVP of Taiwanese told reporters that this will be a big issue for China Airlines, adding the airline was trying to consult with the American Institute in the country over the issue.

Korean Airlines, South Korea’s flagship carrier, also said it had a lot of concerns with the new measures.

Long-haul carriers Air France, Cathay Pacific, Egypt Air, Emirates and Lufthansa all will engage in the new screening measures as well as working with the usual screening measures at all airports.

Lets talk!  How will these screening measures affect your travel plans?

It is my

Of course I did not expect today 10/25/2017 to be my one year anniversary.  A lot has happened in one year.  I moved to Ohio last October.  By this May I moved to Illinois where I was originally wanting to be.  In January in Ohio, at the age of 50, I went back to college, that keeps me very busy!  I will get my Master’s Degree in Human Resources Management.  One reason why I want this degree, is because of the over 100 interviews I have been on and been “over-qualified” for!  A lady at Walmart said to me that I will have the gold-mine selection of jobs when I graduate.  That was the first person to encourage me on this journey.

Besides Blogging, I love my three cats as you all know.  I don’t blog as much but I do care.  I have met some wonderful friends online through blogging.  The hardest part for me is opening up to the world.  So, to me this is a big Ah-ha Moment!

Thank you for stopping by!  Jackie
