In The Region:

Passengers flying out of the Akron-Canton Airport will have a less stressful experience this holiday season.

The Transportation Security Administration expanded its “TSA Pre” operations. “TSA Pre” is an expedited screening program that allows pre-approved travelers to leave on their shoes, light outerwear and belt and keep their laptop in its case.

Passengers eligible for pre-approval include frequent fliers invited by a participating airline and U.S. citizens who are members of a U.S. Customs and Border Protection Trusted Traveler program.

Rick McQueen is the airport’s CEO. He says the program couldn’t have come at a better time.

“It’s kind of a good timing for us. We’re all about trying to give our customers the best service we can here at Akron-Canton and so this is just another little amenity here that will help our people move through a lot quicker and make it a little less stressful for them as they travel this holiday season.”

McQueen says the program allows TSA to be more efficient, making the screening process faster for “TSA Pre” members and non-members alike.
