ACTE Statement on Enhanced Device Screening Measures

July 3, 2017 Airport No Comments Email Email

On Wednesday, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced that it would soon require enhanced screening of larger personal electronic devices for U.S.-bound flights. Greeley Koch, executive director of the Association of Corporate Travel Executives, has offered the following statement:“The Trump administration’s vague travel security policies continue to vex the business travel community. While these new screening procedures are far preferable to an outright electronic device ban for business travellers, we still need clarity on what this looks like in practice. How onerous will these new protocols be for travellers and airlines? What if an airport or airline has difficulty complying—does that lead to a ban on electronics in the cabin? Until we have the details, this policy has the potential to become a de facto device ban.”
