TSA Statement On New Security Measures for International Flights to the U.S.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — “Today, the Transportation Security Administration issued new secu­rity direc­tives to all United States and inter­na­tional air car­ri­ers with inbound flights to the U.S. effec­tive January 4, 2010.

The new direc­tive includes long-term, sus­tain­able secu­rity mea­sures devel­oped in con­sul­ta­tion with law enforce­ment offi­cials and our domes­tic and inter­na­tional partners.

Because effec­tive avi­a­tion secu­rity must begin beyond our bor­ders, and as a result of extra­or­di­nary coop­er­a­tion from our global avi­a­tion part­ners, TSA is man­dat­ing that every indi­vid­ual fly­ing into the U.S. from any­where in the world trav­el­ing from or through nations that are state spon­sors of ter­ror­ism or other coun­tries of inter­est will be required to go through enhanced screen­ing. The direc­tive also increases the use of enhanced screen­ing tech­nolo­gies and man­dates threat-based and ran­dom screen­ing for pas­sen­gers on U.S. bound inter­na­tional flights.“
