WASHINGTON – TSA takes its responsibility to enforce security related regulations and requirements to protect the nation's transportation systems very seriously. As such, TSA has conducted a civil investigation pertaining to the Horizon Air event at Sea-Tac International Airport in parallel to the FBI’s criminal investigation. Through this investigation, TSA found Horizon Air and Sea-Tac International Airport to be in compliance with all security requirements. But in an effort to strengthen and further enhance security, TSA is working with industry partners and the Aviation Security Advisory Committee to look at ways to collectively strengthen security in all aspects of the airport environment.
