TSA PreCheck extended to Jacksonville Airport
The Transportation Security Administration has outlined a plan to have its PreCheck programme in place at 100 US airports before the end of 2013.
The Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) PreCheck programme is now available at Jacksonville International Airport. Passengers who successfully enrol on the programme can complete the airport security process without having to remove their laptop from its case and can keep on their shoes, belt and jacket.
The service is available to passenger flying from Jacksonville International Airport with American Airlines, Delta, United or US Airways.
Members of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) trusted traveller programmes, including Global Entry, SENTRI and NEXUS, automatically qualify to participate.
Ed Goodwin, Federal Security Director for the TSA in Jacksonville, said: “As TSA continues to move away from a one-size-fits-all approach to transportation security, we are looking for more opportunities to provide the most effective security in the most efficient way possible. The TSA PreCheck programme gives us that opportunity.”
The FTE 'On the Ground' conference at FTE Global 2014, which will take place in Las Vegas from 24-26 September, will include a session entitled: 'What are the future collaboration models that will help achieve progress at the real passenger pain-points – airport security and arrivals immigration?' In this session, senior industry figures will discuss the future of airport security and immigration, exploring how things like risk-based security, automated passport control and innovative design techniques can help improve the passenger experience while maintaining the highest level of security.
FTE Global 2014 will also include the 'Up in the Air' conference stream, an extensive exhibition of the latest passenger-focused solutions, the FTE Awards ceremony and an exciting social programme.
