Port of Seattle Statement on TSA Administrator Comments Concerning Long Checkpoint Lines at Sea-Tac Airport

Published on : Saturday, April 9, 2016

Port of SeattleThe Senate Commerce Committee heard testimony from Peter Neffenger, the administrator of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), this morning. In response to questioning from U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA), Neffenger agreed to temporarily reinstitute local training for Sea-Tac Airport TSA officers rather than training in Georgia.

 

“The Port of Seattle appreciates U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell’s leadership in supporting the Sea-Tac’s efforts to reduce long wait times at security checkpoints,” said Port of Seattle Commissioner Fred Felleman. “TSA staffing at Sea-Tac is inadequate, and we haven’t even reached our busiest time of the year. We’re working hard for a less turbulent summer season. Senator Cantwell’s efforts will significantly benefit our travelers.”

 

In addition, Neffenger told committee members Sea-Tac is one of their priority airports for additional staffing.
“We have to mitigate what is going to be a very challenging summer season by pushing as many new hires as we can into the system, directing them to the airports of greatest needs, Sea-Tac is one of those,” said Neffenger.
