Security has been bolstered at Sea-Tac Airport in the wake of the death of Osama bin Laden, but travelers are unlikely to notice, said airport spokesman Perry Cooper.
“You might see an extra port police officer or a canine unit out in the public areas,” said Cooper, “but most of the extra scrutiny is happening behind the scenes.”
Security forces are being extra vigilant in case Bin Laden’s terrorist supporters try to stage retaliatory attacks. Bin Laden was killed Sunday inside a private compound in Pakistan. His body has already been buried at sea.
Security screening procedures for passengers have not been altered, and security lines are unaffected by any extra procedures, Cooper said.
