TSA Status Site Tells Whether Your Airport Actually Uses Their Body Scanners

TSA Status Site Tells Whether Your Airport Actually Uses Their Body ScannersThe Transportation Security Administration has installed the new “backscatter” screening machines in many airports, but a good number of them aren’t actually used yet. One helpful site is compiling reports on which airports are still using X-ray/metal detector combinations.
Ari Ofsevit went through an “enhanced pat-down,” and reported on it, but came to notice that some airports weren’t requiring either the new scanners or pat-downs—they were keeping with what now seems like old-fashioned, post-9/11 security measures. To share those airports without new machines, or with idled installations, he’s created a page listing airport codes and color-coded status reports of their use of newer measures.
You can keep Ari in the know about your own travel experiences by emailing tsastatus or tweeting at @tsastatus.
