Security Issues at LaGuardia and Boston Logan Airports

Two separate security issues at New York’s LaGuardia and Boston Logan airports affected hundreds of passengers. Andy McKechnie tweeted the whole incident in Boston while sitting in a plane on the runway.








The central terminal building at LaGuardia was shut down and passengers were evacuated due to a suspicious package, according to Steve Coleman, a spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.  Bill Buttlar tweeted an update in New York with a picture of people leaving the airport.

The incident at LaGuardia lasted about fifteen minutes.  Passengers were let back into the evacuated terminal after authorities issued an “all clear.”

Someone else posted a picture on Instagram of the US Airways plane stopped on the runway at Boston Logan.  It arrived from Philadelphia.  It is believed that a piece of luggage that was checked but made a “banging” noise when it fell off of a loaded cart gave a baggage handler cause for concern.  The baggage was later deemed harmless but officials say they adopted an attitude calling for an “abundance of caution.”


Following the Boston Marathon bombings, all precautions are being taken at both airports.
