[efoods]Vancouver International Airport is reporting delays to United-States-bound flights of 15 to 30 minutes as a result of the enhanced security measures imposed following the attempted terrorist attack on a plane landing in Detroit Christmas Day.
U.S.-bound passengers are being limited to only one carry on baggage item and in addition to regular security screening can expect a physical pat down as well as a hand check of their personal luggage when they get to their gates.
“Our biggest challenge is letting people know of the one carry-on item restriction,” Rebecca Catley, director of communications at Vancouver International Airport said in an interview.
