British Airways to adopt N.Y. biometric screening
By Nicola Clark

British Airways said Thursday that it would sponsor a new biometric screening system this autumn at Terminal 7 of John F. Kennedy Airport in New York, enabling potentially thousands of trans- Atlantic travelers to significantly shorten their wait at security checkpoints.

The system, which replicates the Registered Traveler pilot program currently used by 27,000 air travelers at Orlando International Airport in Florida, allows passengers, for an annual fee of $80, to breeze through airport security and immigration controls in exchange for providing certain personal information as well as fingerprint and iris scans.

"We hope that this gives our customers a more predictable and more convenient process through security," said Lisa Lam, a British Airways spokeswoman.

Frequent Traveler

Searching for strategies to cope with air travel

Robert Louis Stevenson had it wrong when he said "To travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive." After the British authorities thwarted on Aug. 10 an alleged plot to attack flights bound for the United States, the chaotic aftermath of disrupted flights, long lines and uncertainty over what travelers are allowed to bring on board has challenged the optimism of the most intrepid business travelers.

What Israeli security could teach America
Jeff Jacoby

The safest airline in the world, it is widely agreed, is El Al, Israel\'s national carrier. The safest airport is Ben Gurion International, in Tel Aviv. No El Al plane has been attacked by terrorists in more than three decades, and no flight leaving Ben Gurion has ever been hijacked. So when U.S. aviation intensified its focus on security after Sept. 11, it seemed a good bet that the experience of travelers in American airports would increasingly come to resemble that of travelers flying out of Tel Aviv.

By train, plane or car, we risk DVT after just 4 hours
Health Reporter
Holidaymakers who take journeys that last more than four hours are doubling their risks of getting a DVT, doctors warned yesterday.
The chances of getting a potentially fatal blood clot soars for passengers whether they travel by plane, car, bus or train - especially women on the Pill.
Previous research has mainly linked deep vein thrombosis to air travel, particularly \'economy class syndrome\' when travellers spend many hours immobile, often in cramped conditions on long haul flights.

Spot’ teams to spy on passengersBusiness front of alleged link man
ELITE teams of security officers are to be trained to monitor passenger behaviour at airports in a new attempt to combat terrorism. The “behaviour detection squads” will patrol terminals to monitor the gestures, conversations and facial expressions of passengers. One of their aims will be to spot those who may be concealing fear or anxiety. People deemed to be acting suspiciously will be taken for questioning and prevented from flying if they fail to explain their actions. UK trainers have studied the techniques in America, where behaviour detection squads are already deployed at airports.
