GBTA Applauds TSA Pre✓™ Expansion to Include 60 Additional Airports

  • Published by Vedat
The Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) applauds the announcement by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to expand its TSA expedited screening program to 60 new airports in addition to the existing 40, bringing the total number of airports with TSA Pre✓™ to 100.

The additional airports will allow more pre-approved airline travelers to leave on their shoes, light outerwear and belt, keep their laptop in its case and their 3-1-1 compliant liquids/gels bag in a carry-on in select screening lanes.

“TSA is to be commended for this rapid expansion of TSA Pre✓™ to 100 airports by the end of the year,” said GBTA Executive Director and COO, Michael W. McCormick. “Quick, easy airport security checkpoint screening like TSA Pre✓™ saves business travelers time and money while ensuring security.”

GBTA supports innovative government and private programs to expand TSA Pre™ enrollment. With U.S. companies investing more than $270 billion in business travel in 2013, government programs to expedite travel will increase U.S. competitiveness in a global market.
