Denver International Airport will make adjustments to security checkpoints

DENVER (KRDO) – Beginning Wednesday, Denver International Airport (DIA) plans to make adjustments to its security checkpoint, according to 9NEWS.

The DIA and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) have added a “limited number” of PreCheck lanes at the southern security checkpoint.

Additionally, there are a limited number of standard screening corridors at the northern checkpoint, according to DIA officials.

“The additional lanes will give passengers arriving from the hotel and transit center at the south end and international arrivals at the north end more options to access the appropriate screening lanes at either end of the terminal,” says a press release from the DIA.

DIA recommends that passengers be at least two hours inside the airport before boarding time.
