There Are Strict New Rules For Anyone Flying To The US

Are you ready for the new TSA rules?

New security screenings have begun for all passengers onboard US -bound flights, including airlines interviewing travelers about their trip and luggage.

Following the American Department of Homeland Security directive to airlines flying to the US, Air India has also started asking passengers questions like the objective of their trips and about their check-in bags.

Airlines were given 120 days to comply with the new rules.

Many worldwide airlines had concerns about the new regulations.

White South African farmers forced black man into coffin
The defendants said they were only trying to scare Mlotshwa, alleging that he stole copper cables from their farm. They were also caught on video of threatening to throw a snake in the coffin with their terrified prisoner.

"The security measures affect all individuals, worldwide passengers and U.S. citizens, travelling to the United States from a last point of departure global location", said Lisa Farbstein, a spokeswoman for the TSA. "It's just inconvenient for the passengers", President and Chief Operating Officer Walter Cho told Reuters in Taipei. This is going to lengthen the amount of recommended time passengers need to check in before their flights, likely at least an hour and a half and for some airlines, up to 3 hours before take-off.

In Hong Kong, Cathay Pacific has suspended in-town check-in services as well as self-bag drop services for passengers booked on flights to the United States, except for those travelling on Flight CX888 to NY via Vancouver.

Some airlines will be opening check-in desks early to avoid delays.

Coming soon, is the ban on electronic devices being allowed to travel in checked-in luggage.

Singapore now has the most powerful passport in the world
Earlier this month, Turkey removed the visa-free status to the USA after a row with Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan. For instance, Singapore passport holders don't need visas for China, Cuba and Brazil.

Alexandre de Juniac, CEO of the International Air Transport Association, said the industry understood security threats to aviation were made regularly but in this case the US government had not shared any specific dangers before announcing the initial Middle East and North Africa electronic device restrictions in March.

Airlines were however consulted after the March changes.

"Unilateral actions taken by individual governments reacting to emerging threats may result in unnecessary disruption or lead to unintended safety consequences", said the members.

"The risk is other countries make similar demands", AAPA Director General Andrew Herdman said.

The new rules also come at the end of a 120-day deadline for airlines to meet new United States regulations following the ban on laptops in airplane cabins of some Mideast airlines being lifted. Some say they will conduct screening interviews at check-in counters; provide questionnaires for all US-bound passengers and conduct detailed inspection of personal electronic devices.
