TSA Warns of Expanded Security Measures

Posted: Nov. 27th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse

Travelers to and through Charlotte Douglas International Airport received a reminder from the universally disliked Transportation Security Administration, this time alerting passengers to even more security measures. Thankfully, and perhaps for the first time in recent memory, these measures will make it easier for certain passengers – the very young and the elderly – to move through security checks.

The Transportation Security Administration is reminding airline passengers to review new security measures before traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday this week.  25,000 passengers are expected to travel through Charlotte Douglas International Airport on Wednesday.

“There's been a lot of changes since last Thanksgiving here in Charlotte,” said Mark Haught, TSA Federal Security Director.
