New Bag Screening Procedure at Twin Falls Airport
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX) Travelers heading out of the Twin Falls airport will see some changes if they are going with electronics. The Transportation Security Administration announced this week anyone going through security at the Pocatello Regional Airport, Friedman Memorial airport in Hailey, and the Magic Valley Memorial Airport will need to put all electronics larger than a cellphone in bins for x-ray screening. Computers such as tablets or other electronic devices will need to be taken out of bags and put in the bins without anything on top or below them. The TSA says laptops have been handled this way for several years now. The new procedures have been tested at several other airports for sometime. The TSA did note that passengers might experience more bag checks during security check ins and say passengers should arrive no later than 90 minutes before their flights. TSA also recommends that people flying not clutter their check-on baggage to make screenings easier.
