Following an article from U.S. News reporting on airport security, Surf Patch weighs in with a response.

On October 19, 2012, travel and clothing company, Surf Patch, responds to an article in which airline executives discuss their concerns of the current airport security while at an airline conference in the United Arab Emirates. They feel that unless there is a severe overhaul of the security system, it will be rather difficult for people to fly clear without having to deal with massive traffic.

According to U.S. News, a conference in Abu Dhabi saw several executives share their opinion on the current airport security format and how it can be improved. Tony Tyler, director general and CEO of the International Air Transport Association hopes for a system of airline security based on individual risk. He feels that the current system does nothing but create massive lines. He cited the recently budding Pre-Check System created by the U.S. Transportation and Security Administration (TSA). The head of the TSA, John S. Pistole, stated that if “[people] are more willing to share information then [they] can have a much better experience”.

U.S. News also reports on the current standings of airports and traffic within them. Despite the increase of security stations, the amount of people using airlines has not decreased. The amount of traffic may not be enough for some airports to contain.

The travel and clothing company, Surf Patch, commented on this major problem. World traveler Takara Licausi states, “While it is important to keep our airways safe, we have to attempt to prevent the congestion of our airports.” She continues, “While the TSA’s pre-check system may help alleviate the traffic, it is still severely limited and too new to keep up with the amount of people that travel by plane.”
