A bill that improves the baggage screening process for international travelers to the U.S. and was a key recommendation of the U.S. Travel Association's Blue Ribbon Panel on Aviation Security has been enacted into law today.

"The No-Hassle Flying Act will maintain security while improving the travel experience for millions of international travelers," said Roger Dow, president and CEO of the U.S. Travel Association. "This is the kind of common sense legislation that makes a demonstrable difference in the facilitation of travel, and and it makes our destination more appealing for welcoming travelers to the U.S."

Dow expressed thanks to President Obama and Congressional supporters of this legislation, particularly the bill's sponsors, Senators Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Roy Blunt (R-MO) and Representative Joe Walsh (R-IL 8th District).

The No-Hassle Flying Act allows travelers entering the U.S. from preclearance countries to avoid having to have their baggage screened a second time once they arrive in the United States. For example, travelers from Canada connecting through a U.S. airport will no longer be forced to have their bags rescreened. Baggage screened at airports in preclearance countries is required to meet U.S. Transportation Security Administration standards.


The U.S. Travel Association is the national, non-profit organization representing all components of the travel industry that generates $1.9 trillion in economic output and supports 14.4 million jobs. U.S. Travel's mission is to increase travel to and within the United States.
