  • Montana airport will apply for private screeners
    The board of Montana’s Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport this week voted to pursue private security screeners for the airport. The airport will apply for permission to use private screeners; the Transportation Security Administration has 120 days to respond. Officials hope to have private screening in place by next summer. "We’re looking at private security primarily to enhance the experience at our airport to ensure that we have good security but also good customer service at the same time," said Airport Director Brian Sprenger.

In a report, the GAO noted that it is unclear if such a requirement would improve security because the Transportation Security Administration has not conducted a cost-benefit analysis. A requirement could raise costs for air freight companies. The Journal of Commerce (6/14) sm_share.gifLinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • L.A. City Council votes unanimously to halt LAX Wi-Fi contract
    The Los Angeles City Council has voted unanimously to put the brakes on a contract that Los Angeles International Airport signed with Florida-based Advanced Wireless Group to provide free Wi-Fi access. The council stated that a competitive bid process should have been instituted to give local companies a chance at the deal.
