New screenings for U.S.-bound airline passengers

By -NO AUTHOR-

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — All incoming flights to the United States will be subject to new security screening procedures, including both American citizens and foreigners possibly facing security interviews from airline employees, a U.S. government official said Wednesday.

The announcement from the U.S. Transportation Security Administration comes after five global long-haul airlines – Air France, Cathay Pacific, EgyptAir, Emirates and Lufthansa – said they would begin the new security interviews starting Thursday. A sixth carrier, Royal Jordanian, said it would begin the new procedures in mid-January after U.S. authorities granted RJ’s request for a delay in implementing the measures.
