Cleveland Hopkins security remains heightened after EgyptAir crash

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Cleveland Hopkins International Airport officials declined to be interviewed about security at the airport following the EgyptAir crash, but a media representative said that security was heightened -- the same as it was before the crash.

Passengers, meanwhile, said they were concerned, but still confident that airline travel, right now, is safe.

"I saw it on the news, and I thought, 'what in the world would prevent that from happening here?' Because of the advances in terrorism -- the technology that they have. I look around. I think, those TSA security lines are long, but I'm glad they are slowing down and taking their time," said Diane Schoolitz of Phoenix.

Anujoa Gupta of Chicago said the TSA is only as good as their technology, which seems to be pretty thorough.

We asked Gupta if he felt leery about traveling in light of this most recent crash.

"No, not really. It's my job to travel. So, you have to travel," said Gupta.
