Airlines for America (A4A) the industry trade organization for the leading U.S. airlines, applauded the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) plan to expand the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) Pre✓™ program to include an additional 60 airports across the country.

The expansion will more than double the number of U.S. airports with expedited screening lanes to a total of 100 locations by the end of 2013. TSA officials noted more than 15 million passengers have used TSA Pre✓™ since it launched in October 2011.

A4A has consistently advocated for programs that take a risk-based approach to security, including TSA Pre✓™ and Known Crewmember, which enable TSA to focus its resources on greater threats, enhancing safety and security while making travel more efficient and convenient for customers.

“Expanding the TSA Pre✓™ program to 100 U.S. airports will greatly improve the overall travel experience by enabling more passengers to benefit from expedited screening procedures across the country,” said A4A President and CEO Nicholas E. Calio. “We applaud DHS for continuing to advance risk-based solutions that make travel more convenient and enjoyable for the traveling public, while enhancing safety and security.”
