More TSA Screeners Coming Soon for Faster Airport Security Lines

TSA Increasing the Number of Security Screeners at Airports Nationwide
Congress has approved funding for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), allowing them to spend more money on day-to-day operations. Like adding more TSA screeners at airport security lines!
The TSA will convert ~2,700 part-time screeners to full-time and hire an additional 600 TSA officers. In doing so, they’ll be able to open 53 more security lines throughout the US this year.
This is great news for all of us. But don’t forget there are other ways to get through security faster, like with TSA PreCheck and Global Entry.
Cards That Offer Free Global Entry or TSA PreCheck
I’m happy about this news! Let me know about your experience getting through security on your next trip!
