New Airport Security Procedures Means Arriving Earlier

If your travel plans include flights out of Wenatchee, Yakima or the Tri-Cities plan on spending more time getting through the security checkpoints as the Transportation Safety Administration has implemented new inspection procedures at those three airports. According to the TSA any electronic item larger than a cell phone needs to be removed from carry on luggage and placed in a bin with nothing else inside. Previously only laptop computers had to be removed from carry ons. TSA recommends arriving at least 90 minutes before your flight.
