SFO security heightened in the wake of Brussels airport attack

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – Passengers are still checking into their flights as San Francisco International Airport, like many airports across the country are making changes to add to the safety for all passengers.

US airlines including Delta, United and American canceled flights on Tuesday after two deadly blasts at a Brussels airport.

According to SFO spokesperson Doug Yakel, passengers can expect to see more increased patrols at the airport and are currently reviewing this incident with TSA and law enforcement to determine if changes need to be made with passenger screening procedures–as with the case in most major cities.

Kababayans who were awaiting their flights home to the Philippines say they are shocked by the news but are hoping for their own safety.

“We hope it is going to be safe and we are confident,” said Emmy Deguzman, a kababayan traveling to the Philippines. “We feel confident about it.”

Angelito Sunga, another traveler to the Philippines, said he feels safe with the increased security at SFO.

United Airlines did have two flights that were due in Brussels on Tuesday morning and the airline has confirmed that both landed there safely.

    SFO’s check-in area aren’t safe. No security personnel there. Anyone can go there without a ticket.

    The best thing you can do to be safe is don’t travel, if you have to travel than go but if it’s not important stay home is the best bet, that you will be safe from the ISIS group that says they have trained 400 people to go all over the world to kill people at the airports and on airplanes with bombs. So right now the thing you can do to stay safe is don’t travel if you don’t have too.
