ORLANDO, Fla. — Leaders at Orlando International Airport could start taking steps to replace TSA screeners with a private company during a meeting Wednesday.

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 the airport, but passengers might not even notice.

Transportation Security Administration officials say the controversial full-body scanners are here to stay. They will be the primary security screening for “as many people as possible.” By next year, those who refuse the screenings will get a full pat-down.

On the other hand, TSA screeners could be getting the boot.

In a memo, Orlando International Airport confirms it is now considering hiring a private company to do the job just like the Sanford airport.
