The video monitors will provide step-by-step instructions for passengers to complete screening at their own pace and once all checks are complete automated exit doors will open to let travelers through.

While there is minimal assistance from Transportation Security Officers (TSO), they will be on hand for assistance as needed.

“We are constantly looking at innovative ways to enhance the passenger experience, while also improving security,” TSA Administrator David Pekoske said. “This self-service prototype allows our trusted travelers to complete the screening process at their own pace. Testing at the Innovation Checkpoint in Las Vegas gives us an opportunity to collect valuable user data and insights and explore opportunities to apply parts of the prototype to other airport security…
