New Speedier Airport Security Procedures are Spreading


The registered traveler program, conceived after 9/11 as a way to speed frequent fliers through airports’ long and unpredictable security lines, is finally gaining national momentum, the Christian Science Monitor reports. By next summer as many as 20 major airports are expected to have special security lanes for registered travelers under the program.

Though the system is not expected to expand enough this summer to ease security lines that have been tightened after the foiled terrorist attacks in Britain, the future expansion of the program should give passengers something to look forward to as they pad barefoot through metal detectors.
