Local Airports React To Heightened Security

Airport security nationwide has been beefed up since Friday's attempted terrorist attack aboard a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit but what exactly does that mean for future travelers in the east?

According to Pitt-Greenville Airport Manager Jerry Vickers holiday travel has run extremely smoothly so far this holiday season.

There haven't been any problems so far and flights have been landing and taking off on time.

Vickers says passengers probably won't see any major changes at the airport since safety has always been P.G.V.'s top priority.

Vickers tells us passengers should be ready for different kinds of changes at airports around the country, but wasn't specific.

He did advise passengers to leave some extra time for their travels.

    Anon: And God forbid it should ever change. Last time I flew into Raleigh and out from PGV. Yeah... next visit Im going to PGV only, not Raleigh. It's not that Raleigh is a bad airport (I've dealt with far, far worse on large scale ones, namely LAX and DFW), but PGV being so small was way more relaxed and the screening process was fast and easy. I saw a lot of construction going on... hopefully it isn't a huge expansion planned!

    Just remove you underware to have it scanned on the belt, just like shoes. Reactionary, again. What happened to all those Obama's peers he surrounded himself with, are they incompetitant?

    The Pitt/Greenville airport? Give me a break, that place is so small.
