GGA CHAIRMAN PRAISES STEPS TO IMPROVE SECURITY AT NEWARK AIRPORT

CALLS FOR PERMANENT PRECHECK ENROLLMENT CENTERS AT ALL 3 NY AIRPORTS

(NEW YORK) ― Global Gateway Alliance Chairman Joseph Sitt released the following statement today in response to a commitment from the TSA and United Airlines to improve security at a number of US airports and open permanent PreCheck enrollment centers, including at Newark Liberty Airport:

"TSA and United are taking the right steps to address the hours-long security lines plaguing the region's airports. And opening a permanent PreCheck enrollment center at Newark Airport to meet passengers where they are – something GGA has long called for – just makes good common sense. The next step is TSA opening enrollment centers at all three of the region's airports and ensuring the right level of staffing is there to meet rising demand."
