Washington DC-based trade organisation Airlines for America said it is supporting the US Department of Homeland Security´s (DHS´s) plan to expand the TSA Pre programme allowing more domestic travelers to benefit from expedited security screening procedures.
Later this year, US citizens will be eligible to begin the Pre enrollment process online.
Additionally, TSA will open enrollment centers at Dulles International Airport and Indianapolis International Airport, with more enrollment sites expected to be added nationwide.
Annually, commercial aviation helps drive more than USD 1 trillion in US economic activity and more than 10m US jobs, the group said.
A4A airline members and their affiliates transport more than 90% of all US airline passenger and cargo traffic.
