  • Screening rules eased for senior citizens
    The Transportation Security Administration is phasing in a plan to make screening easier for passengers age 75 and older. The new guidelines, which allow seniors to leave their shoes and light outerwear on, are in place at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport as well as airports in Denver; Orlando, Fla., and Portland, Ore. However, TSA spokesman David Castelveter pointed out that older travelers will still receive screening. "We will limit the amount of screening of those who pose the least risk," he said. The guidelines should be in place at all U.S. airports by the end of this summer, according to the TSA. (6/28) sm_share.gifLinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • Equipment glitch lengthens lines at Albany airport
    A glitch in security equipment at New York’s Albany International Airport security this week highlighted the importance of arriving at the airport early. At one point, it took travelers up to 40 minutes to pass through checkpoints. Airport officials said some travelers who did not arrive the recommended 90 minutes before their flight’s departure missed their flight. "It’s always been 90 minutes," airport spokesman Doug Myers said. "We just have to reinforce it." Times Union (Albany, N.Y.) (6/27) sm_share.gifLinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • Airlines cut capacity on Europe flights to maintain fare prices

"The industry is being proactive about restructuring the amount of seats that are available for sale given the European debt crisis," said analyst Dan McKenzie of Rodman & Renshaw. Data released by Airlines Reporting Corp. indicate growing demand for U.S.-to-Europe flights as ticket sales jumped 5.9%, to 1.31 million, for peak travel months.
