Secretary Michael Chertoff announced a targeted raise in the threat
level in light of today’s arrests in the United Kingdom:
- Threat Level Raised to Code Red or Severe for flights
originating in the United Kingdom bound for the United States
- Threat Level Raised to Code Orange or High for all commercial
aviation operating in or destined for the United States.
The adjustment to Red or Severe reflects the Critical, or
highest, alert level that has been implemented in the United
“Further, as a precaution against any loose ends in the
plot, and against any would-be copy-cats who may be inspired to
conduct similar attacks, we will also raise the threat level to
High, or Orange, for all domestic commercial aviation and for
flights arriving in the United States from
The rest of the country remains at Code Yellow or Elevated.
“We believe that the arrests in Britain have significantly
disrupted this threat. We cannot assume, however, that it has
been completely thwarted, or that we have fully identified and
neutralized all members of this terrorist network. While there is
currently no indication of any plotting within the United States,
the federal government is taking immediate steps to increase
security measures in the aviation sector.
These measures will continue to assure that our aviation system
remains safe and secure. Travelers should go about their plans
confidently, while maintaining vigilance in their surroundings and
exercising patience with screening and security officials."
