Airline passengers travelling from Canada to the United States will face a new battery of "enhanced security measures" now required by the Department of Homeland Security. In fact, any electronic device larger than a smartphone will have to be easily accessible for screening without a case or any packaging.

Passengers should be prepared to arrive at the airport early and should contact their airline if they require more information.

"You're going to need to show them that it's working".

Effective July 19, 2017, there will be extra effort to review all passengers' electronic devices, per request by the US Department of Homeland Security.

United Nations "deeply disappointed" by attack that killed at least 20 civilians who had fled fighting in country's southwest. Yemen's internationally recognised government confirmed that around 20 people were killed, including women and children.

A group of airline groups, including the International Air Transport Association, criticized the new requirements in a July 14 letter to American officials saying it is a "fundamental shift away from the risk-based approach" and said it would be "extremely difficult" to 'meet the deadlines because of the lack of availability of screening equipment technology and resources'.

"I think it's the new world order and we just have to get used to it", Landerville said. The airlines covered by the new regulations announced last month by DHS secretary John Kelly were given time to implement them.

Beginning Wednesday, passengers on all direct flights coming into the United States from Mexico can expect more stringent electronics screening at Mexican airports. US-bound travellers are being told to arrive three hours before their departure to allow for the additional procedures if their flight is before 10 a.m.

"My life is pretty important to me I'd say, so if it's a safer option, then yeah", Hoffrogge said before making her way to security.
