JUMPING THE QUEUE : THE PRIVATE SECTOR KNOWN TRAVELER PROGRAM IS BEING PILOTED AT ORLANDO, FLORIDA

This article discusses the Private Sector Known Traveler (PSKT) program in operation at Orlando International Airport in Florida. The privately-run PSKT enrolls into its “Clear” program those individuals who have been accepted as lower security risks by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). With a Clear card, passengers are able to pass through specially expedited security checkpoints, thus enabling security personnel to focus more closely on those travelers who pose unknown security risks. While the TSA’s own Registered Traveler program is limited to five airports, with a single airline at each airport and a membership limited to 10,000 people, the PSKT programs is open to all airlines and those passenger who can pass the background screening and are willing to pay the $79.95 first year annual fee. The article includes an overview of how individuals can enroll in the program and its basic operations.
