New TSA guidelines launch at Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport

The Transportation Security Administration is implementing stronger screening procedures for carry-on items at airports across the country - including now at Richmond International Airport.

Travelers must remove all personal electronic devices larger than a cell phone from carry-on bags and put them in a bin with nothing above or below them.

TSA Spokeswoman, Lisa Farbstein, says putting the items in a bin not only gives a better X-ray image to make sure there aren't any explosive devices, but it also unclutters what else is in your bags.

New TSA procedures go into effect today, that require passengers to take all of their electronics out of their bags.

There are no changes to what travelers can bring through the checkpoint. TSA officials suggest that passengers arrive to the airport 90 minutes prior to their scheduled departure time from Richmond to allow adequate time to navigate the ticketing, baggage and security screening processes.

TSA PreCheck fliers do not have to undergo the new procedure.
