The National Business Travel Association (NBTA) expressed disappointment to learn that the primary Registered Traveler (RT) vendor Verified Identity Pass, which operates the Clear Registered Traveler program, ceased operations. NBTA urges the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and U.S. airlines to revitalize the RT program to provide greater efficiency and security to business travelers.

Kevin Maguire, CCTE, GLP, NBTA President & CEO, said: NBTA has supported the Registered Travel program since before its inception and has pushed for improvement and expansion over the years. We believe this program allows for strong, safe travel and alleviates burdens that can hinder productivity while on the road. As the program’s primary provider ceases operation, we urge TSA, in cooperation with U.S. carriers, to keep the program alive and make certain it becomes a true risk-management tool for secure and efficient air travel.

NBTA is hopeful Verified Identify Pass will responsibly and effectively address the security of personal data with its subscribers, many of whom are NBTA members. We extend our support to RT travelers throughout the nation and stand ready to facilitate concerns and adjustments as they arise.
