Security at Sea-Tac Airport just got a little easier

Sea-Tac Airport says new technology at one of its checkpoints will help move travelers through security faster.

Automated Screening Lanes were installed at checkpoint 5 at the north end of the airport terminal last week, just in time for spring break travel. The change is expected to free up Transportation Security Administration agents to focus more on potential threats and less on arbitrary tasks like moving bins around.

“This investment by the Port of Seattle is about improving the customer experience, security and efficiency – all goals to serve our travelers better,” said Lance Lyttle, Managing Director of Sea-Tac Airport.

Sea-Tac released a video to prepare travelers for the changes. Most notable improvement: bigger bins that put themselves away.
