Miami International Airport Opens Additional Checkpoint, Adds More TSA Staffing for Summer Travel

Miami International Airport is opening an additional checkpoint and hiring more than 60 TSA agents for the summer travel season, officials said Wednesday.

The Concourse D Checkpoint 4, which provides access primarily for American Airline passengers, will open during the airport's peak hours.

In addition, officials are dedicating a new checkpoint at Concourse D for passengers who are part of the TSA Precheck program.

Travelers at airports across the country have experienced slow-moving lines blamed on an increase in the number of air travelers and a shortage of TSA officers in recent weeks. But at airports over the Memorial Day weekend, travelers found shorter and faster moving security lines.
