Airport security has been at the top of the list for discussions by travelers in recent years. Since 9-11, the airports have been adding new and more stringent rules, regulations and requirements for all passengers and this has caused many to complain. Unfortunately for the average traveler who has never done anything and would never do anything, you must remember, you look the same as those who may. For this reason, learning what to expect and what choices you have when passing through security is the best option you may have when you next travel. Avoid common complaints by becoming a more informed traveler and know before you go with Tradewinds Vacations.
Full Body Scanner – What Options Do I Have? A Frequent Travel Complaint
As a traveler who may still have concerns about the new technology in place by TSA, you do have an option. Your option is to request a pat down. The pat downs are generally not seen as much better than the scanners however. The TSA realized that this complaint was actually quite legitimate as the scanners were quite revealing and made many uncomfortable. TSA spent the next year developing new technology to help. This new technology is more acceptable to most and still as effective, if not more than the previous.
Updated Complaints Solved This Holiday Season
One of the most common complaints made by travelers traveling with children is that the rules are the same for the children as the adults and this sometimes causes issues. One common complaint was that children were forced to remove their shoes. It is often difficult enough to get their shoes on in the first place let alone removing them only to put them back on 50 seconds later.
TSA understands this and have updated security measures when dealing with children. Children under 12 are no long obligated to remove their shoes unless an issue is found. In addition to this change, some travelers will see an expedited screening process which TSA is testing in some of its larger airports. Though many will not see this impact their travel for many months, for those who are part of the test, they will benefit saving time at the airport.
