Changes to Airport Security after 911

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. - September 11th dramatically changed the way we fly.

Federal Security Directors at the Tri-Cities Airport describe it as a new way of life and said we will never go back to the way it was before 9-11.

Liquids are still not allow on flights with a few exceptions.

Airport Security has completely changed procedures.  There are more random security checks, bomb sniffing dogs are brought in and the public can not wait for people inside the gate.

But many people said the changes make them feel safer.  Passenger Alejandro Gonzalez said, "From what I've noticed with the changes security has really increased.  They did what they needed to do. I'm glad to fly and I feel safer."

Others people that traveled said they could not help feeling nervous and feared another terrorist attack.

Airport security said this heightened way of traveling is now considered normal and that people are slowly adjusting.
