Port Angeles: Keep gifts unwrapped, airport manager says

PORT ANGELES — Don’t try to play Santa Claus at William R. Fairchild International Airport.

Jeff Robb, the airport’s manager, says every wrapped package will be unwrapped and searched by security workers.

If you want to give holiday packages, ship them ahead.

“Travel with unwrapped packages,” says Robb.

Increased scrutiny of packages is just part of stepped-up security in effect for the holidays in Port Angeles, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport and at other airports nationwide.
