  • TSA recognizes 10-year presence at Tennessee airport
    The Transportation Security Administration on Monday will affirm its federal employee oath of office in recognition of its 10-year presence at Knoxville’s McGhee Tyson Airport. TSA Federal Security Director Stephen Wood will speak at the event. "Over the past 10 years, TSA has evolved into an agency that uses intelligence, innovative technologies and a highly trained workforce to keep the traveling public safe," Wood said. "TSA will continue to play a critical role in staying ahead of determined adversaries." The Knoxville News-Sentinel (Tenn.)

  • Some smaller U.S. airports still use TSA screeners
    Smaller U.S. airports were subject to fewer security measures than major airports after the 2001 terrorist attacks. However, some small airports do have Transportation Security Administration screeners. Illinois’ Williamson County Regional Airport, for example, is staffed by three to four TSA screeners. However, the airport has no advanced imaging technology; screeners use metal detectors and X-ray technology to screen travelers and bags.

  • Man crashes through fence surrounding Vermont airport
    Last week, a man drove his truck through the perimeter fence at Vermont’s Burlington International Airport. Airport officials say they will reinforce the fence to prevent future such incidents. “Where it was penetrated on the north end, we will put some reinforcement in front of the fence,” said Gene Richards, the airport’s interim director of aviation. “And we’ll do the same thing on the south end.” The suspect, Brent Rutledge, 39, appeared disoriented and was arrested.

  • Some business travelers are opting to drive as airfares rise
    The fact that the average domestic airfare jumped 4.8% from first-quarter 2011 to first-quarter 2012 hasn’t escaped some fliers who are choosing to get to their destinations by other means. "It’s not that I like driving that much, but at some point, it’s nuts. At least I don’t have to take my shoes off," said business consultant Bill Catlette, who now opts to drive if a trip is fewer than 500 miles.
