TSA IMPROVES SECURITY EXPERIENCE AT ADDITIONAL AIRPORTS

Earlier in January, President Obama signed a new law that provides expedited airport security screenings to members of the armed forces. The legislation requires the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to set new procedures to provide military members and their families quicker and less invasive screenings while in uniform and traveling on official orders.

Additionally, in the coming months, TSA’s PreCheck trusted traveler program will expand to include two new airlines (U.S. Airways and United Airlines) and several new airports.

Currently, eligible travelers at nine airports nationwide can voluntarily submit to pre-screening, which allows fora faster checkpoint experience at the airport. U.S. Travel is currently working with Congress and TSA to ensure that this program is expanded to include more of the flying public.
