Travelers may experience longer wait times at Transportation Security Administration checkpoints at Los Angeles International Airport, one of 10 airports to test new screening procedures, officials said last Wednesday.
Although there are no changes to what travelers are allowed to bring in carry-on bags, they may be asked to place certain electronics and other items in a separate bin for screening in an effort to declutter baggage, according to TSA.
“Over the past year, TSA has been adjusting screening procedures at select U.S. airports on a trial basis in an effort to improve screener performance at the checkpoint,” TSA said in a statement.
TSA will evaluate the results at the test locations to determine if any future checkpoint procedures should be altered, officials said.
“As we have said time and again, TSA continuously enhances and adjusts security screening procedures, both seen and unseen, to maintain the highest levels of security,” the statement said.
