Hartsfield-Jackson begins TSA Baggage Screening Project

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport will begin building the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) in-line baggage screening facilities near the North and South Terminals on July 16 and July 21, respectively. A special government-airport partnership will make the federally mandated project a reality at an estimated cost of $215 million. Once complete, the TSA Baggage Screening Project will help ensure a more efficient baggage check-in process for travelers. “Hartsfield-Jackson currently averages nearly 50,000 departing travelers every Monday,” said Aviation General Manager Ben DeCosta. “Relocating TSA’s large electronic screening devices from the airport’s lobby areas will allow us to safely accommodate more travelers within the main terminal building while reducing congestion, as demand for air travel continues to rise.” Full Story
