"Having been around explosives all my life, the device as described to me had an amount of explosive on it that I just did not believe could destroy an airplane in flight", said Kelly, a retired Marine Corps general. "Airlines were able to implement the necessary enhanced security measures because of the close coordination and extensive communication between aviation partners and DHS/TSA", the statement read.
Later, Kelly said his Department wished to see more sniffer dogs at airports, and will be introducing a requirement for advanced biometric passports to be compulsory for flights coming into the US.
"The quick and decisive action taken by airlines, nations, and stakeholders are a testament to our shared commitment to raising the bar on global aviation security", said Lapan. As of today, the ban has been removed in full for all ten airports and nine airlines included in the original travel restriction. And Secretary Kelly says terror organizations will continue to try to beat any new security measures that are put in place. So it's not going to stop.
