Grenada’s Maurice Bishop International Airport has introduced new security measures on the back of the failed attempt to bomb a Northwest Airlines plane that occurred on 26th December 2009.

Following this attack, the US Department of Homeland Security for airline operators, foreign carriers and airports released new security guidelines pertaining to all travelers flying into the United States.  Consequently, Grenadian authorities have advised that tightened measures have been introduced at the airport.  Staff are carrying out full body-checks on passengers travelling from countries that the US considers to be a security risk including Cuba, Pakistan, Iran, Yemen and Nigeria.
