Passengers Flying to USA Face “Increased Security Requirements”

Increased aviation security requirements are now being implemented for passengers traveling to the United States from Iceland. A recent announcement posted on the Icelandair website notes that as of September 30, passengers should allow additional time at the airport to go through these new steps, which include passenger interviews.

“These implementations should not cause any delays, but we ask passengers to show patience and understanding while these requirements are being implemented,” read the announcement. “Interviews will be conducted with passengers going to the United States before check-in and consequently the check-in process may take a little longer than usual.”
