With the summer rush starting, the TSA could be looking towards implementing new screening procedures to provide more safety in more vulnerable areas of airports. In fact, travelers should expect different airport screening procedures in place just after the summer comes to a close.
New Airport Procedures
Recently, the Transportation Security Administration has been playing around trying to find better ways to screen airport patrons. For instance, policies such as removing paper from bins and separating various electronic devices from one another could become standard procedure once the summer travel rush ends. These new airport rules could become a reality in places where they had been tested. In fact, screeners in these airports that conducted specific tests underwent training in order to provide a relatively smooth transition to the new process.
No Confirmation, Yet
While there has been no outright confirmation from the TSA, there have been hints. The TSA has warned travelers that they may need to separate more things out of their bags than previously necessary. In fact, TSA agents have been struggling with screening stuffed luggage and multiple carry-ons in a short amount of time. These new practices and policies will hopefully make it easier for TSA agents to deem luggage secure and appropriate in a quicker fashion.
Let The Sorting Begin
These new policies and procedures that very well may be implemented in the very near future could have travelers sorting out more and more items from their carry-on luggage. In fact, sorting food and drinks may become a common procedure in airports across the world. All of this is supposed to create a much faster trip through the screening process and reduce the still massive lines that occur every day at airports around the world.
Another new procedure that may be implemented at the close of summer is the way airports verify your identity. In fact, having more secure identity verification procedures at checkpoints is a good way towards making airports a more secure place to be.
