WFTV has been following the uproar over the TSA’s controversial full body screens and intrusive pat downs.
Orlando Sanford International Airport is already making the switch to a private screening company. It would bring about a huge change at OIA, but passengers might not even notice.
Even though TSA screeners would no longer be on the job, TSA officials would choose and pay the private company. Seventeen airports across the country have already made the switch to private screening companies.
