Expect delays at Kansas City International Airport, but don't expect new security measures to look much different from the old ones, an airport spokesman said Friday.

New security measures announced Thursday by President Clinton aren't all that different from old security measures, but they'll be more intense, said Joe McBride, a KCI spokesman.

"What that means is add another half hour to your travel time," McBride said.

Also, travelers should arrive prepared with photo identifications that must match the names on their tickets, and they should be ready to answer questions about their luggage.

"Keep track of your bags, be aware of your surroundings and be patient with the whole thing," McBride said.

Security isn't the only reason to leave home early to catch a flight at KCI.

McBride said construction at the airport is also causing some travel delays.
