AUSTIN, Texas (KXAN) — Travelers heading to the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport should plan a little extra time to move through security.
The bag screening process is temporarily changing for those taking off on a Frontier, Allegiant, Virgin America, Air Canada, Delta, or Southwest flight.
The current 8-year-old screening machines are being replaced with more efficient machines.
The new process requires travelers to check their bags at the ticket counter, take their bags to a screening machine, and then give their luggage to TSA before being screened themselves.
The project is expected to be completed by Spring of 2016.
