TSA Pre✓™ Expansion Further Improves Program

October 6, 2014 Destination North America No Comments Email Email

The U.S. Travel Association today praised the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and Administrator John Pistole for expanding the TSA Pre✓™ program with a Private Sector Pre-Screening initiative that will make more low-risk travelers eligible for expedited airport screening.

“Thanks to the new TSA Pre✓™ Private Sector Pre-Screening initiative, more Americans who do not pose a security threat will be able to apply for expedited airport screening, making our skies more secure and travelers happier,” said Roger Dow, president and CEO of the U.S. Travel Association. “TSA and Administrator Pistole are to be credited for yet another innovation that taps into private sector and commercial capabilities, and will keep TSA Pre✓™ delivering on its promised benefits.”

The new initiative leverages private industry best practices to identify and pre-screen low-risk, trusted travelers, thus providing an alternative method to apply for expedited screening beyond direct enrollment sites. After the private sector pre-screening process has determined a traveler’s TSA Pre✓™ eligibility, TSA will also conduct a security threat assessment.

Said Dow: “By safely increasing the opportunity for enrollment in TSA Pre✓™ , private sector pre-screening will help make more Americans eligible for trusted travel while strengthening security measures. This is more evidence that with innovative policymaking, security and passenger convenience can both win.

“We look forward to working with TSA and Congress toward comprehensive marketing efforts that will help this already successful program achieve its full potential.”
