BRITISH AIRPORTS SETP UP SECURITY


LONDON – Air travellers from Britain to the United States faced tightened security on Sunday as authorities ramped up efforts to prevent attacks in the wake of a failed bid to blow up an airplane over the US.
A 23-year-old Nigerian with reported links to Al-Qaeda smuggled explosives on board a Northwest Airlines flight from Amsterdam to Detroit on Friday that he allegedly tried to detonate as the flight approached the US city.
  • British Airways said US-bound passengers from the UK would undergo additional screening and would only be allowed one item of hand luggage.
  • BA also said people taking Christmas or other gifts in their hand luggage would be asked to unwrap them before boarding.
  • Virgin Atlantic stressed the need for plane tickets to correspond exactly with passports; noting that this also applies to marriage or maiden names.
  • Transport minister Andrew Adonis said: "We have agreed enhanced search regimes for passengers on flights to and from the United States. These have taken place immediately. They will lead to delays in flights to the US."
