Fast Pass

By | August 31, 2006

As reported by the Seattle Times, Seattle-Tacoma Airport has decided not to apply for the government’s Registered Travel Program.

The TSA’s Registered Traveler Program is set to provide expedited security screening for passengers who volunteer biometric and biographic information and successfully complete a security-threat assessment. The information is collected by private organizations licensed by the TSA, and the registration can cost as much as $100.

Some business travellers may feel this is worth it to eliminate security lines and rush through security. But despite all this information on a passenger, we question how this information will be used to make us all safer.
