Delta Builds Security Checkpoints, More Efficient Than TSA’s Own Lanes

Delta has taken matters into their own hands at Atlanta where the airline has installed a pair of “innovation lanes” that the carrier says can help double throughput at security checkpoints. The lanes employ ideas and technology that you’ve likely seen at select airports in Europe.

As per The Verge, Delta spent over $1M on the lanes and had them set-up in under two months.
