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.
