Cabin security inspections

Cabin Security Inspections

  • Mandated more than a year ago by TSA on US passenger flights servicing the Micronesian region

  • The security directive requires that the airline conducts cabin security inspections at all international airports

  • To do this, all passengers are asked to deplane


Cabin security inspections1

Cabin Security Inspections

  • What has changed since last year?

    • At each airport (except Kwajalein) only one side of the aircraft is required to deplane; this is done randomly

    • When it rains, all passengers remain on board while cabin inspections are carried out

    • Business class passengers are not required to deplane
