The U.S. Travel Association has released a report detailing some ways that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) could be improved. The report is called “Transforming Security at Airports: An Update on Progress and a Plan for the Future of Aviation Security,” and aims to improve air travel in the United States.
The U.S. Travel Association’s CEO Roger Dow released a statement about their intentions.
“The American economy and way of life depend greatly upon a well-functioning TSA, and we cannot afford to wait until the next crisis to take a hard look at the agency’s operations. We need a set of policies that puts TSA on ‘autopilot,’ so to speak, so the agency’s long-term success is ensured. Our policy blueprint does exactly that.”
The report includes ideas about how to spend TSA money, improving the way that software is used, cutting out unnecessary rechecks, and expanding the PreChecks.
“Training a TSA agent is expensive—as it should be, if it’s done right—and expending those valuable staff resources on tasks that have little to do with identifying and managing threats is, to me, the definition of inefficiency. Our solutions focus on cutting waste, directing funding where it needs to go and thinking creatively about operations management.”
