The stronger screening procedures are being rolled out nationwide as the TSA seeks "to stay ahead of evolving threats, said Bart Johnson, the federal security director for upstate airports, including Albany International Airport".

Kindles, iPads, gaming consoles and other electronics larger than a cellphone will join laptops in needing to be removed from carry-on bags and placed in individual bins at airport security checkpoints across upstate NY, the Transportation Security Administration said Thursday.

Fliers will have to remove all electronic devices larger than a cell phone from their bags - placing them in separate bins.

The new procedures are now being phased in nationwide until all of the checkpoint lanes at all airports are brought on board in the weeks ahead. TSA officers will be stationed in front of the X-ray machines to guide passengers on the new procedures and advise them on how best to organize their packing to speed the screening and expedite their passage through the checkpoint.

It is possible that more carry-on bags may experience bag checks, however, TSA has identified ways to improve screening procedures for carry-on bags, with quicker and more targeted measures for officers to clear the bags.

There are no changes to the items travelers can bring through the checkpoint. As a result, the new process is not expected to alter checkpoint wait times, it said. TSA encouraged passengers to keep their carry-on bags organized and uncluttered to aid in the screening process and keep lines moving. Food and liquid items that comply with the 3-1-1 liquids rule, electronics, and books continue to be allowed in carry-on bags.

The new measures don't apply to passengers enrolled in TSA Pre-Check and using Pre-Check lanes.
