Airports to increase security measures in wake of Vegas Shooting

Airports to increase security measures in wake of Vegas Shooting”

Kindles, iPads, gaming consoles and other electronics larger than a cellphone will join laptops in needing to be removed from carry-on bags and placed in individual bins at airport security checkpoints across upstate NY, the Transportation Security Administration said Thursday.

The new procedures were originally announced earlier this year.

This is all about your electronics, laptops, tablets, game consoles, cameras.

Construction is set to begin later in October on an 80,000 square foot security pavilion, that the TSA's Kevin McCarthy said will allow Midway to expand from 17 security lanes to 27.

The new procedures are expected to be in place starting this month at the major four Upstate New York airports-Albany International Airport, Syracuse Hancock International Airport, Greater Rochester International Airport and Buffalo-Niagara International Airport.

TSA officers will be stationed near the checkpoint X-ray machines to help travelers through the screening process and recommend how to arrange their carry-on items for X-ray screening. "Keep in mind the underlying reason beyond this is that people like to manipulate and change the makeup of that, so it looks like a common item that you would have, but when modified could be a threat to aviation".

According to a press release issued by the mayor's office, the expansion project will create a security checkpoint area seven times wider than the current security hallway, and will feature all new screening technology. TSA encouraged passengers to keep their carry-on bags organized and uncluttered to aid in the screening process and keep lines moving. Food and liquid items that comply with the 3-1-1 liquids rule, electronics, and books continue to be allowed in carry-on bags.

TSA is implementing new security measures for carry-on bags.
