Hey, it’s Rich Dale. Last weekend, I talked about how COVID-19 has changed the way air travel works — possibly permanently. But wait, there’s more! The TSA has announced some new Coronavirus screening procedures ahead of the summertime travel season.
What strikes me as strange is that a couple of these new rules almost contradict certain 9-11 rules that we’ve been living with for a long time. For instance, scanning your own boarding pass instead of handing it to the agent seems a little less secure. Or being able to take a 12-ounce bottle of hand sanitizer aboard.
I’m guessing these TSA procedures won’t be permanent. But as with everything else right now, time will tell.
