Oregon lawmakers applaud TSA decision to maintain security infrastructure as Crater Lake-Klamath Regional Airport recruits new carrier

Congressman Greg Walden

Maintaining security equipment will ease logistical burdens, help airport’s recruitment efforts

Rep. Greg Walden, along with Rep. Peter DeFazio and Sens. Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley, applauded the decision by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to maintain security infrastructure at Crater Lake-Klamath Regional Airport in Klamath Falls as the airport recruits another carrier to resume commercial air service.

“The decision by TSA to temporarily maintain screening equipment as the airport actively recruits a new carrier is great news,” said the lawmakers. “We want to thank Administrator Pekoske for working with the airport and the Klamath Falls community in response to our request to keep this security infrastructure in place until the recruitment process is complete. This will allow the airport and local community to recruit a replacement carrier without the administrative and logistical burdens of removing the equipment. We look forward to continuing our work with airport officials and the Department of Transportation to bring commercial air service back to Klamath Falls.”

The announcement is in response to an October letter the lawmakers sent to TSA Administrator David Pekoske requesting that screening equipment remain in place. In their letter, the lawmakers stated that this would allow the airport to continue its recruitment efforts unhindered by the burden of removing the equipment.

“The local community understands well the diverse benefits that air service provides. That’s why they are working to find a replacement,” the lawmakers wrote. “As they do that, we respectfully request that you allow TSA screening equipment to temporarily remain at the airport until such time that a robust recruitment of potential replacement carriers has been completed.”
