Non-stop Air India flights to the US to get additional security measures for electronic devices
Non-stop flights from India to the US, have got extra explosive trace detectors at departure gates to scan personal electronic devices that will be carried as cabin baggage.
According to a report in The Times of India, departure gates dedicated for non-stop US flights at New Delhi and Mumbai airport, now have glass barricades to ensure that passengers go straight to the aircraft.
The United Airlines and Air India are the two non-stop flights that depart from India.
Speaking to the TNN, a senior security officer said that due to some changes in the US rules, personal electronic devices have to undergo the electronic trace detection. However, it is only for those devices which create suspicion.
According to an Air India spokesperson, the additional security measure has begun. Passengers flying to the US would be questioned during boarding about their purpose of visit, strict checking of passports and visas will take place at check-in counters.Recently, international aviation agencies had planned to ban laptops in check-in baggages in India.
