ACI And TSA Ink Deal To Boost Security

ACIAirports Council International – World, Airports Council International – North America and the U.S. Transportation Security Administration have signed a memorandum of understanding to enhance the development of secure and efficient aviation security operations globally.

The MoU seeks to formalize multiple workstreams and ensure the continued collaboration on and promotion of global aviation security projects, including identifying airports and providing assistance to enhance security through the ACI Airport Excellence (APEX) in Security program and ACI World Smart Security program.

The agreement also calls for collaboration on innovation programs such as ACI World’s global first, AirportShare project, launching live wait times data from multiple airports for passengers, and supporting the One-Stop Security Program between select international and U.S. city pairs to eliminate redundant security screening.

“Collaboration is essential in support of our shared mission to provide for the safety and security of the traveling public and aviation workers,” said Kevin Burke, ACI-NA president and CEO. “With our new MoU among our partners at TSA and ACI World, we are further strengthening our efforts to enhance aviation security while advancing innovation and the use of technology to improve the passenger experience through data sharing.”
