ACTE Statement Regarding Enhanced Screening Measures for Electronic Devices

July 31, 2017 Business News No Comments Email Email

On Wednesday, July 26, the United States Transportation Security Administration announced that it would begin separately screening all electronic devices larger than a cell phone included in passengers’ carry-on bags for domestic flights. Greeley Koch, executive director of the Association of Corporate Travel Executives, has issued the following statement:

“TSA is spot-on in pursuing measures like this, as opposed to blanket device bans and other confusing policies lacking in detail. Leveraging technology—including tried and true tools like x-rays–enables a comprehensive process that enhances security without placing an undue burden on travellers. While this policy might occasionally increase time in the security line, we see it as a reasonable way to improve security while still allowing business travellers to stay connected, productive and confident in their safety. But the government shouldn’t stop there; it should always be seeking new technology and methods to make the security screening process fast, comfortable and easy while being effective.”
