US transportation security officials are considering a request by Israeli airline El Al to do its own baggage screening at Newark Liberty International Airport - something the airline already does at four other major US airports. The Star-Ledger of Newark reported in Thursday's newspapers that the US Transportation Security Administration has quietly permitted El Al to do its own screening of baggage destined to be put aboard its flights at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, Los Angeles International, Miami International and O'Hare International in Chicago. No other airline has such an arrangement with US officials, authorities acknowledged. At the four other airports, El Al has installed its own security software at bomb-detection machines, which authorities said is more sensitive than that used by American carriers.
