TSA trials express security screening
The TSA’s latest trial aimed at speeding up the airport security process is currently taking place at Atlanta, Miami, Detroit and Dallas/Fort Worth airports.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is trialling a new screening method at four US airports, whereby frequent flyers who share personal information in advance of their journey can enjoy expedited security processing.
Delta and American Airlines have invited selected frequent flyers to share personal information, such as their home address and contact information, and in return they can make use of an express security lane.
The pilot is currently taking place in Atlanta, Miami, Detroit and Dallas/Fort Worth airports.
Christopher McLaughlin, Assistant Administrator for Security Operations, TSA, said: “We are truly moving away from a one-size-fits-all approach to security, to a risk-based intelligence-based approach.”
