  • TSA begins Known Crewmember operations at ATL
    Pilots now have the opportunity to participate in an expedited security screening program at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. The new plan will allow registered crew who met certain security and background check standards when hired to skip physical screenings at the airport. The program is expected to reduce wait time and make more resources available for screening for passengers. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (11/6) sm_share.gifLinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • Tourism group lowers outlook for travel industry
    The World Travel & Tourism Council says it maintains an optimistic outlook on global travel despite slightly downgrading its growth prediction for the industry. The group lowered its 2012 forecast to 2.7% from the 2.8% predicted earlier in the year, mainly due to a 0.2% decline in its global GDP growth estimates this year. "Despite some specific and regional downgrades to short-term economic and industry forecasts, the longer-term prospects for travel and tourism remain very positive, and continue to be boosted by strong growth and rising prosperity in emerging markets," said council President and CEO David Scowsill.

  • Airlines seek new fees despite ancillary revenue increasing
    Airlines earn ancillary revenue for extra baggage, Wi-Fi service and other goodies, and they stand to make 11.3% more in 2012 than they did with such fees the year before, this feature says. Major carriers will earn $36.1 billion in fees this year, according to a report by IdeaWorksCompany and Amadeus. But watch out for new charges. "The low-hanging fruit is gone; they are going to have to invent products," says travel writer Joe Brancatelli.

  • Police use of UAVs draws opposition in Seattle
    Members of the Seattle Police Department were faced with chants of "No drones!" at a public meeting two weeks ago. Ryan Calo, a faculty member at the University of Washington School of Law, has written extensively on the subject of how UAVs might affect privacy. "We associate drones with the theater of war, and we can picture the inscrutable robot flying over the city," said Calo. "It’s very evocative, and it could provide a real window for us to examine the balance between personal privacy and emerging technology."
