Roger Dow, president and CEO of the U.S. Travel Association, issued the following statement on the Department of Homeland Security’s Thursday announcement that the Transportation Security Administration’s Pre✓™ program will expand to include Southwest Airlines:
“I’d like to congratulate Southwest Airlines on becoming the eighth U.S. airline to extend PreCheck eligibility to its frequent-flyer members, and to thank the Department of Homeland Security and TSA for continuing to aggressively expand this program that so clearly benefits travel consumers.
The recent trend in federal aviation policy has been decidedly pro-traveler, and the more people travel, the better it is for U.S. economic and job growth. PreCheck is a prime example of the innovative policies—Global Entry, Visa Waiver and Automated Passport Control are others—that are making travel easier for the public while still maintaining the optimum security standards that always need to be our top priority.”
