Do you speed through security and feel frustrated when less savvy travelers slow down the line? Or do you take your time and need extra assistance from TSA? Either way, 21 cities in the US have adopted a pilot program to help people move through airport security more efficiently.
This new airport security program is called Black Diamond Self-Select Lanes. It’s a modeled after ski slopes, where the runs are labeled according to difficulty, and skiers decide which runs to take based on their ability. There are three lanes: expert, casual and families/special assistance.
The new program, which has increased throughput by 20-40%, is available in these cities:
- Dallas Love
- Salt Lake
- San Jose
- Los Angeles
- San Diego
