U.S Homeland Security secretary John Kelly, yesterday unveiled enhanced security measures for foreign flights arriving in the United States.  Officials have described the move as  a bid to prevent an expansion of an in-cabin ban on laptops and electronic devices.

The measures would affect 325,000 airline passengers on about 2,000 commercial flights arriving daily in the United States, on 180 airlines from 280 airports in 105 countries.

The measure would be effected in three weeks and would require extra time to screen passengers and personal electronic devices for possible explosives.

Homeland security have said they expect that about 99% of airlines would comply with secretary Kelly stating that “Inaction is not an option.”

He further said “We expect all airlines will work with us to keep their aircraft, their crew and their passengers safe.”
