Passengers heading to area airports can expect tightened security measures Saturday as the threat of Friday's attempted terror attack is assessed by law enforcement.
"We were called a few hours ago. There is no security directive at this point directing us to do something, but . . . [we] volunteered to immediately upgrade our security, immediately increasing security and patrols at the airport."
Rizzuto said she expects the TSA will issue a directive on increasing security measures.
Department of Homeland Security officials said travelers will see an immediate stepped-up security presence.
"Passengers may notice additional screening measures put in place to ensure the safety of the traveling public on domestic and international flights," Sara Kuban, a spokeswoman for Homeland of Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, said in a prepared statement.
