Making Clear Airport Security A Routine Process

by Greg Diener

As we travel one of the troubles connected with airports, that we have to take into concern are the issues with terror threats. The government has to go over every security threat being placed on citizens, and the airline industry has to come up with ways and ideas to put passenger safety as a top concern. Clear airport security has to be dealed with in an appropriate manner to make all travelers feel comfortable when they board their flight.

However we have seen on the news a ton of complications about how broken the security system is at our airports. Some folks have screamed about inappropriate screenings at the security gate from the TSA, a few travelers have been pushed to cancel flights due to airport shutdowns over possible security threats that have later turned out to be nothing serious. This has only served to add trouble for tourists when they try to get on a plane. Most passengers are mindful of the consequences associated with air travel, but they want to feel like security is working with them and not against them when they are just planning to board the plane.

Speaking as a person who on average goes on at least one plane ride every decade, one of the biggest reasons why I do not like going on airplanes is I don't feel that risk management is dealt with in a serious manner at airports. I normally notice at least five problems that I could see that would lead to a potential problem where an unfortunate accident may occur at the airport or on the plane itself. These are things that have to be dealt with and addressed to the TSA so that these problems can be avoided.

New solutions are being compiled to somewhat lessen the concerns about security at the airport. One service known as CLEAR allows a traveler to upload their information for a yearly fee which gives them the chance to move through long security lines and reach their flight much easier. While still subject to the usual TSA security screenings, methods like these have the potential to make the lives of travelers much easier.

It is not difficult to imagine that there may come a time where airline travel will not be mentioned with some degree of fright about how broken the system is. If new possibilities can come to the table, and answer the numerous problems about security while keeping an eye on threats in an adequate matter, every passenger will win out in the long-run.
