US to Tighten Airline Security Rules

AP

The US is calling for airlines around the world to beef up security on international flights bound for the United States, Sky News reports.

The US Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said airlines that did not comply or are slow to enforce the new standards could be forced to ban large electronics in both carry-on and checked luggage.

They could also lose authorization to fly into the US, but he said he is confident the airlines would co-operate.

The new rules will apply to around 180 foreign and US-based airlines, flying from 280 cities in 105 countries, according to Homeland Security.

Around 2,000 international flights land in the United States daily.
