article imageTransportation Security Administration will reduce the size of No-Fly list

By bullseye     Jan 18, 2007 in Travel
The Transportation Security Administration is checking the accuracy and reducing the number of names on its ‘no-fly’ list.
Kip Hawley of the Transportation Security Administration said Wednesday that his agency is working to check the accuracy and reduce the number of names on their no-fly list. “A ‘no-fly’ list of suspected terrorists and criminals considered too dangerous to travel on commercial airliners in this country has existed for decades. But since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the list expanded. Tightened security procedures have led to closer scrutiny of air travelers and resulted in many complaints.” A new passenger screening program, Secure Flight, to be implemented in 2008 should prevent the problem of falsely identifying passengers with names that are similar to those on the no-fly list.
