Busi­ness Trav­el­ers Find TSA PreCheck More Sat­is­fy­ing

Business Traveler (USA) - - LIFESTYLE NEWS -

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).
