TSA regulations ensure tightened security at Marsh Harbour Airport

Last month, the Department of Civil Aviation on Abaco announced that passengers must arrive early to satisfy the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) regulations, and to ensure that flights depart on time at the Marsh Harbour International Airport.

TSA regulations now require security officers to conduct a full-body pat down and wanding of passengers as well as a bag search of all handbags and luggage. Private airlines are also subject to the regulations in addition to ensuring that their premises are fully secured with electronic gates and restrict passengers’ access to secured areas.

To tighten security at the Marsh Harbour International Airport, fencing has been placed around the perimeter of the airport, tarmac and control tower facilities.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is an agency of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security that exercises authority over the security of the traveling public in the United States.
