TSA Offers Summer Travel Tips For Flyers; Following Them May Be The Most Useful Contribution To Airline Safety Citizens Can Make

June 2nd, 2010 · No Comments

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has just issued its annual “Summer Travel Tips” for flyers. According to Blogger Bob from The TSA Blog (a trailblazer, by the way, in government blogging):

Summertime isn’t officially here yet, but as far as I’m concerned, it’s summer as soon as the pools are open. So, in preparation for this holiday weekend and the summer travel season to come, I wanted to post some helpful travel tips. Our highly trained security officers are prepared for the increase in passenger volumes and are dedicated to ensuring safe travels. TSA will be fully staffed and prepared to address the needs of the traveling public this summer.

So lather up with your favorite suntan lotion, take your laptop out in the sun, and read all about TSA travel tips. Fruity beverages and lounge music are optional.

Though the advice may seem mundane, following it may be the most useful way the average citizen can contribute to airline security. The tips include how to pack, how to get through the line faster, the ‘right’ clothes to wear and how to best deal with special circumstances. The most important, according to Blogger Bob:

The best piece of advice I could give a traveler is to arrive early. No matter what happens, (aside from a flight being cancelled) if you get to the airport early, you should be fine. Worst case scenario is you’ll have some time to catch up on some reading or a few Z’s while you wait on your flight.
