- The TSA said it will add more air marshals to flights.
- Travelers might see more police officers, bomb-sniffing dogs and random screenings, according to The Associated Press.
- The TSA is looking “to ensure those who may pose a threat to our aviation sector undergo enhanced screening or are prevented from boarding an aircraft,” he told the AP.
The announcement of changes comes after supporters for President Donald Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol as Congress looked to certify President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. There has been increased tension on airline flights. In fact, Utah Sen. Mitt Romney was involved in an incident at the Salt Lake City International Airport and during a flight to Washington, D.C., as the Deseret News reported.
- “We are working closely with local law enforcement and airport authority partners to ensure the safety of our customers and team members on the ground and in the air,” the airline said in a statement, CNN reports.
