Surf Patch responds to an article by The Kansas Eagle about the TSA and their improvements and changes to security measures and checks since 2001.

On October 16 2012, travel and clothing company Surf Patch observes a recent article about how the TSA has revolutionized air travel and airport security and how they continue to institute new methods to streamline the security process.

According to the article by The Kansas Eagle, the TSA has changed airports in a number of ways to make it both safer and more efficient for travelers who clear airport security. The article states that an influx of passengers and increased security measures has caused the TSA to open a fourth lane in most national airports as of last month. TSA Director Keith Osborn states in the article that the new lane will keep passengers from being trapped in line and stuck in airports for extended periods of time. The article further states that the TSA will now be taking more relative approaches to their security measures. For example, they intend to take more liberty with strict security protocol when it comes to children.

These new measures coincide with new plans for the TSA to institute Precheck programs which allow passengers to confirm boarding passes and ID’s electronically. The TSA hopes that the shift from man to machine ID verification will keep the process moving smoothly and more quickly without hindering normal security measures, according to Osborn in the article.

Travel and clothing company Surf Patch comments on these ongoing changes made by the TSA, approving of their willingness to speed along the process of airport security while keeping safety measures intact. Frequent traveler Takara Licausi states, “The TSA seems to be working hard to get people through airport security quicker while limiting intrusive methods on travelers,” says Darrohn. “Ten years ago, one would be hard pressed to see airport security methods that maintained a balance between safety and a traveler’s personal space. Now, the TSA is making sure that everyone is not only kept safe, but comfortable and satisfied while flying and traveling.”
