TSA May Abandon Lake Charles Regional Airport
Have you ever dreamed of just walking through airport security and getting to your boarding area without taking off your belt or getting subjected to radiation from the body scan? Well, your dreams may be coming true here in Lake Charles.
KPLC reporter, Ashley Joseph, reports that the Transportation Security Administration is considering axing passenger screenings at 150 small to medium-sized airports across the country. The proposal would eliminate the screenings at airports that have commercial planes with 60 seats or less. The Lake Charles Regional Airport currently operates planes with a seating capacity of 54 seats.
This proposal would save the TSA $115 million per year, and they say the saved funds would be used to step up security at larger airports.
