    The fact that the average airfare has jumped by 4.8% from first quarter 2011 to first quarter 2012 hasn’t escaped frequent fliers, who are increasingly jumping ship and choosing to get there by other means. "It’s not that I like driving that much, but at some point, it’s nuts.

  • TSA says Montana airport may use private screeners
    The Transportation Security Administration has ruled that Montana’s Bert Mooney Airport in Butte may use a private company to screen travelers. “It’s a good deal,” Airport Director Pat Shea said. “We’re excited about it.” He noted a private company may be able to hire and retain more local employees. Many of the TSA employees who work at the airport come from the national center. Currently, 16 airports in the U.S. use private screeners.
