More Automated Screening Lanes (ASLs) are being installed at US airport checkpoints, according to Steve Karoly, acting assistant administrator for requirements and capabilities analysis at the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) authorised the TSA to deploy up to 220 ASLs at 21 airports by 31 January 2018. By early December 2017, the TSA had deployed 106 ASLs at a dozen international airports – among them New York JFK, Newark Liberty, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta, Chicago O’Hare and Los Angeles. “By April 2018, an additional 40-50 ASLs will be in place. We’re going fast and furious,” Karoly said during the 16th Annual AAAE/TSA/DHS Aviation Security Summit in December 2017.
