(DES MOINES) Starting Sunday you should be able to make it through security at the Des Moines airport a little faster. The TSA is installing an additional security lane. Jay Brainard, with the TSA in Des Moines, says the reason is the jump in passenger traffic this year.
“Airport traffic is up, it’s up about 10 to 12% over last year, and right now we’re seeing anywhere from 1,150 to 1,400 passenger every morning between the hours of about 4:30 and 7:00,” said Brainard.
He says it should shave off the wait time at the security stations from up to 20 minutes to about half that.
