After the incident on Christmas where an individual attempted to set off an explosive device on a Northwest Airlines flight from the Netherlands to Detroit, Michigan, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has issued guidance regarding heightened security measures. Individuals flying into the United States should anticipate greater scrutiny in the form of increased screening such as more thorough baggage searches and pat-downs. Inevitably these measures will increase the wait time at the airport and individuals are advised to allow extra time to advance through the various check in and security check points. Travelers are also reminded that during their flight they will be instructed to follow special measures such as putting away their personal items and turning off their electronic devices for specific periods of time.
