CAL passengers advised of airline security measures

Caribbean Airlines is advising of more stringent security measures for all Trinidad and Tobago passengers travelling to the US. 

In a statement, the airline said that the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) now requires additional security measures for all international flights to the United States.

The airline said these measures may include increased screening of travellers as well as questioning of some or all travellers, along with heightened screening of electronic devices larger than a standard smartphone.

Travellers should be prepared to remove these devices from their cases for inspection.

For international flights, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) recommends arriving at the airport at least three hours before one's flight, allowing time for the additional security measures.
