 ANA Security Information (12/27/02):
    A new guideline has been set by the TSA(Transportation Security Administration), with regard to
enhanced baggage security measures in preventing terrorist actions against airlines flying in and
out of the United States. All checked baggage shall be screened using enhanced explosive
detection tests or systems, and is subject to search. (At Los Angeles International Airport, new
security measures will start from December 31, 2002.)

According to this guideline, the TSA urges passengers to leave their checked baggage unlocked,
which will avoid the potential need to forcibly open bags that requires further physical inspection.
Please be reminded that any further inspection of checked baggage(including the forcible opening of
Locked baggage) by security inspectors of the TSA may be done without the air carrier being notified.

The Following requests are for passengers who enter and depart the United States:

1) For those passengers locking checked-in baggage.
Please be reminded of new security measures in the above notification.

2) For those passengers not locking checked-in baggage.
Please make sure that baggage is not overpacked so that baggage closes firmly. Valuables should be
packed in carry-on luggage.

3) Camera Film
Please do not pack camera film in your checked baggage, as the enhanced screening equipment being
used for security might damage your film.

4) Dangerous Goods Items
Dangerous goods cannot be taken into the cabin in accordance with the law.
Should you require further assistance, please contact ground staff.
