Message for U.S. Citizens: Aviation Security Enhancement

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA), in consultation with relevant Departments and Agencies, has determined it is prudent to enhance security, to include airport security procedures for passengers at certain last point of departure airports to the United States. These enhancements include more stringent measures applied to 10 specific airports, to include Queen Alia International Airport (AMM).

The enhancement in security will require that all personal electronic devices (PEDs) larger than a cell phone or smart phone be placed in checked baggage.  Approved medical devices may be brought into the cabin after additional screening.

Airlines were notified on March 21 at 08:00 EDT.  They have 96 hours within which to comply.  For more information on these security enhancements, please contact your air carrier or visit the Department of Homeland Security website.
