New TSA Checkpoint Procedures – Mobile Edge Blog

Since September 11, 2001, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has implemented several security checkpoint procedures.  One new procedure is allowing travelers to leave their laptop inside their Mobile Edge Checkpoint Friendly Laptop Bag when passing through airport security checkpoints.  This new collection exceeds TSA guidelines to be 100 percent TSA compliant.

By using the approved Mobile Edge laptop cases you will  save time going through security checkpoints, you will help the security lines moving quicker and will help protect your laptop from being forgotten or stolen.  In fact, it has been reported that more than 12,000 laptops are lost or stolen at airport security checkpoints weekly nationwide.  If more people used Checkpoint Friendly Laptop Bags this would help everyone move through the line quicker and possibly alleviate extended delays.

Also new for checked luggage is a fully automated screening machine.  In several major airports across the nation, there are new explosive screening machines that screen all bags that go through the system without a TSA agent having to touch the luggage.  If there is a suspicious looking bag, the screeners will flag the specific piece of luggage and give it a further inspection by an actual agent.  Click on the video to see exactly what I am describing. Stay tuned for more travel tips.
