Southwest Florida International Airport officials added extra security in light of new terror threats targeting jetliners. All departing passengers had to dump beverages, shampoos and lotions. Lee County Port Authority spokeswoman Susan Sanders says travelers took the new measures in stride -- and security lines have been short all day.
“I thought they might be backed up because I’m sure that many of the passengers, especially those on the early flights, had a lot of things in their carry-on bags that are covered under this new security directive. So I figured it would take some additional time. But the lines have been moving really well.”
