Business Travelers Find TSA PreCheck More Satisfying
Business travelers consistently name airport security one of their biggest travel pain points. However according to the Business Traveler Sentiment Index from the Global Business Travel Association, road warriors who sign up for TSA PreCheck are significantly more satisfied with air travel than their non-PreCheck peers. In fact the survey found that 66 percent of travelers enrolled in TSA PreCheck are satisfied with getting through airport security, compared with just 47 percent of business travelers not enrolled in the program.
TSA PreCheck is a risk-based system which pre-screens travelers to expedite the security process at the airport. Currently PreCheck is available at more than 150 US airports nationwide.
The GBTA research, conducted in partnership with American Express, indicated that travelers age 55-plus are enrolled at much higher rates than other generations – 51 percent of Baby Boomers surveyed are enrolled; compared to 37 percent of Gen Xers (35-54); and just 32 percent of Millennials (18-34).
