  • TSA expands PreCheck program at Seattle airport
    Eligible travelers on United Airlines, US Airways, American Airlines and Delta Air Lines may now participate in the Transportation Security Administration’s PreCheck program at Sea-Tac Airport. The program was previously available at the airport only to Alaska Airlines travelers. PreCheck is part of the TSA’s effort to shift to risk-based screening. The TSA has also recently modified screening for elderly travelers. The Seattle Times (7/2) sm_share.gifLinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • Column: PreCheck experience was "amazing"
    Scott Mayerowitz recently experienced airport security as a trusted traveler for the first time. Mayerowitz described the feeling as "eerie but amazing." "In lines next to me, people danced around in socks, emptied their pockets and fed plastic trays through X-ray machines," he writes. "But for the first time in more than a decade, I effortlessly passed through security. There wasn’t even a line." He noted that just because a traveler is enrolled in PreCheck does not mean that they can use it every time they travel, because some participants are selected for random screening.

  • Column: Advice for moving quickly through security
    Avoiding peak travel times and familiarizing yourself with security procedures are two ways to make passing through airport security checkpoints easier, writes Irene Levine. She also notes that travelers should check with their carrier to see if it offers first-class and elite passengers priority check-in, security and boarding. She also notes that children under age 12 do not have to remove their shoes, and elderly travelers are now subject to fewer pat-downs.

  • Midweek Fourth of July holiday will affect travel plans
    Data trackers are forecasting roughly flat travel volume and spending around the Fourth of July holiday week because the holiday falls on Wednesday and declining consumer confidence has led travelers to tone down their travel plans. "The midweek holiday seems to have travelers confused," said Anthony Del Gaudio, a vice president with Loews Hotels. AAA predicts travel spending over six days during the week to reach $749, down from $807 over five days in 2011.

  • Air travel demand slowed increase in May, IATA reports
    Global air traffic data released by the International Air Transport Association indicate a general slowdown in demand growth in May. While global passenger demand in May climbed 4.5% above May 2011 figures, it fell short of the 6.1% growth recorded in April 2012, IATA reported. "Business and consumer confidence are falling. And we are seeing the first signs of that in slowing demand and softer load factors," said IATA CEO and Director General Tony Tyler.
