New Air Security Rules issued by TSA

They are, however, subject to change. See for more details.

On Dec. 25, 2009, an individual on board Northwest Airlines Flight 253 set off a device and was subdued by passengers and crew.

As a result of this incident, TSA has worked with airline and law enforcement authorities, as well as federal, state, local, and international partners to put additional security measures in place to ensure aviation security remains strong. Passengers traveling domestically and internationally to U.S. destinations may notice additional screening measures.

Byrne, Davis & Hicks, P.C. will monitor this issue and will provide you with more details as they are available. Our first interview with international travelers resulted in he following observations of so called Heightened Security:

* more trained dogs are at airports to sniff explosives
* the last hour prior to arrival everybody must be seated
* limited or no usage of mobile electronics (including laptops)
* no liquid duty free purchases (alcohol sealed by the duty free store) allowed regardless of the fact that the duty free store saw no problem with this
* more body pat downs in addition to scanners
