No Touchy! TSA Will No Longer Touch Your Boarding Pass
Updated: Jun 17, 2020
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced that its agents will no longer touch your boarding pass as you move through the airport security line. In the current climate, it makes perfect sense. As written in the press release:
“Instead of handing their boarding pass to a TSA officer at the travel document podium, travelers should now place their boarding pass (paper or electronic) on the boarding pass reader themselves. After scanning, travelers should hold their boarding pass toward the TSA officer to allow the officer to visually inspect it. This change reduces the TSA officer’s need to touch a passenger’s boarding pass thus reducing the potential for cross-contamination.”
