It comes following at advisory from the Airports Authority of T&T, which states that the US Department of Homeland Security has determined it necessary to enhance security measures for all commercial flights to the US.

It means that persons travelling to the US will have to arrive the recommended 3 hours prior to the scheduled departure time, because of lengthened queuing time at security checkpoints.

The measures include heightened overall passenger screening, extensive screening of personal electronic devices, and increased security protocols around aircrafts and in passenger areas.

T&T is one of 104 countries globally that will be adopting the required measures.
