For the first time since re-gaining passenger service, the Greater Rockford Airport is having to react to a heightened terror threat. Rockford’s airport was filled Sunday night with passengers heading to Las Vegas. One noticeable difference already, longer lines at the baggage check.
Airport security hand inspect luggage every day. Since the increase in the terror level, federal screeners are keeping a closer eye at what goes on-board. Passengers flying Sunday night were a little un-easy about the heightened state of our country.
Those traveling in and out of O’Hare and Midway airports will notice more police officers in the terminals and on the grounds.
