It's imperative that we have to look for the dangers we face every day. When we make the conclusion to travel anywhere on an airplane we know we are taking a hazardous risk. The risks connected these days from outside threats related to terrorism have outlined how essential it is to keep all Americans safe from danger. Writing as a person who is very skeptical about wanting to be on a plane, these risks make me lean in the direction towards steering clear of air travel.
With an increasing concern about security problems at the airport, travelers have had doubts if their safety is being treated with the utmost attention. Nobody wants to be in line at the security gate only to be forced to wait an indefinite amount of time because security has to check to see if a passenger has the required size in their luggage to move past the gate. Being forced to rearrange or cancel a flight is a situation they do not want to be put in.
On the bright side there are policies being utilized at airports to help fight this drawback. CLEAR is one such plan which gives everyday airline travelers the opportunity to be stress-free at the security line. Any passenger for a yearly charge can distribute their information to be used onto a card which can be authorized at a participating airport. Through a CLEAR kiosk and a retina scan, the passenger gets authorization and clearance to move in the front of the line. Although it doesn't solve all the security problems (the rider has to still be subject to a pat-down) hopefully it is one step to easing passengers worries about airline security.
Maybe there will come a time when we do not have to fear getting on a plane flight. Until we get to that time though, we have to find solutions and programs that will help us view airline travel positively. Although the risks joined with airline travel are never going to be absolutely eliminated, we should not be in constant fear. The reason we go on airplanes is that we want to travel and take pleasure in what planes bring us. The reward in air travel for everybody far outweighs the risks in the long-run.
