All US-bound passengers leaving Lynden Pindling International Airport (LPIA) will now be required to undergo a pre-boarding physical inspection and search of their carry-on luggage as a result of the attempted Christmas terror attack.

Representatives from the Airport Authority, Nassau Airport Development Company, Bahamas Security Services and the airlines have met to address the new travel regulations implemented by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), a division of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

The airport's interim plan includes additional security screeners to minimize delays and congestion in the terminal.

All of the relevant agencies are working to minimize inconvenience to passengers.

NAD said in a statement that passengers are being advised to arrive at LPIA three hours prior to their flight departure time.
