LINTHICUM, Md. (AP) — Security is being heightened at Baltimore’s airport after the killing of Osama bin Laden, but an airport spokesman says he doesn’t expect travelers to be impacted significantly.

There was a light volume of travelers and security lines were short Monday morning at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Mashall Airport, as well as at Reagan National Airport in Washington.

Travelers such as Catherine and Rupert Farley of Fredericksburg, Va., recognize that al-Qaida might retaliate but did not consider changing their plans to fly from Washington to the Bahamas.

Ben McWhorter of Augusta, Ga., didn’t notice any increased security when boarding his flight to BWI and wasn’t worried about immediate attacks. He says he will be more concerned in a couple of weeks.
