DHS Releases Revised Security Directive To Airlines Worldwide

Reuters  (7/14, Shepardson) reports the US Department of Homeland Security on Friday issued a revised directive for airlines worldwide following requests for clarification over mandated aviation security measures set to take effect next week. According to Transportation Security Administration spokesman, James Gregory, “This clarifying update will strengthen global aviation security and is a testament to our shared commitment to raising the baseline.” According to officials, the directive includes technical adjustments, enhanced passenger screenings and increased security protocols. However, an airline official said it does now give “airlines more flexibility and additional time to obtain explosive trace detection equipment.” Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly unveiled the security measures on June 28.
