Yakima Airport Is Making Security Changes...

YAKIMA, Wash.,- For years the check-in process inside the Yakima airport has been a fairly simple process--you show your ticket, I. D. and in you go.  

Now, the airport has been ordered by the Transportation Security Administration, to not allow passengers to bring in containers that hold any type of liquids due to fear of possible terrorist attacks.

"I think they need to do whatever is necessary to curtail anything that might go wrong on an airplane or in an airport," said Clearence Gordon, a Yakima Airline Passenger.

Yakima Airport Manager, Buck Taylor says despite what happened in Britain, there will not be much changing at the airport in Yakima.

"Passengers are allowed to have baby formula, breast milk or juice if the baby is traveling with the adult, said Taylor

Taylor said the bigger airports are requiring passengers to arrive an hour earlier than the normal time for check-in; but he says since Yakima's airport is so small, passengers will only need to arrive 15 to 20 minutes earlier.
