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.
