Speed Through Security Thanks to Industry-Leading Scanners
New screening lanes will be speeding up security lines at Atlanta’s domestic terminal south’s security checkpoint, enabling travellers to keep electronics and approved liquids in their carry-on bags.
The terminal is the first in the U.S. that will be converted to computed tomography-automated screening lane (CT-ASL) systems* - making the world’s busiest airport even more efficient as travelers connect to destinations around the world.
The new lanes will be installed throughout the remainder of the year to help people move through Atlanta’s south checkpoint more seamlessly and with fewer touchpoints.
The new systems also help minimize touchpoints and reduce crowding for safer travel – protocols that have become especially important during the COVID-19 pandemic.
