San Francisco International Airport to upgrade security checkpoints in international departures hall

14 January, 2020

San Francisco International Airport announced (13-Jan-2020) plans to upgrade the security screening checkpoints located in the Mayor Edwin M Lee International Departures Hall. The project is part of a larger USD152 million programme to upgrade the international terminal facility. Once complete, the expanded checkpoints will accommodate 33% more screening lanes. The airport plans to install traditional lanes upon opening, but the project will allow for easy conversion to Automated Screening Lanes, which are already being deployed in Harvey Milk terminal 1 and terminal 3. San Francisco International Airport director Ivar C Satero said the project will "improve the current process while also paving the way for future improvements and innovations in security screening". Construction is scheduled to conclude in Feb-2021. [more - original PR]
