New Checkpoint Will Make Logan Airport Security Lines Quicker

BOSTON (CBS) – A $62 million makeover at Logan Airport’s Terminal C will move you along through the security lines a bit quicker.

It’s a 12-lane checkpoint for passengers, and Ed Freni, the Director of Aviation at Massport, says that will get you to your gate a little faster.

The new checkpoint, which is located directly behind the JetBlue ticket counter, replaces two different checkpoints that had served a total of 21 gates for Cape Air, JetBlue and United Airlines in two different concourses.

Freni says this new checkpoint can accommodate over 2,000 people in less than an hour.

The renovation moved many of the terminal’s concessions from pre-security to post-security.

    So now employees of the concessions will be groped daily to get to work? REAL PROGRESS! The TSA should be nixed and get some Israeali Police to take them and show them how it’s done.

      The Israeli system will not work in the United States. Since Israel has only one major airport, all air traffic is international. Passengers are required to arrive at the airport three hours before flight time and that is what allows Israeli security to interview each passenger. Would you show up at Logan three hours early to take a one hour flight to LaGuardia? I doubt that many short distance travelers would continue to fly if they had to spend that much time waiting to board.

      Obviously you have no idea how employees enter checkpoints and what they have to do. Besides nobody gets “groped” and you don’t even have to get touched if you follow simple instructions.

    The earlier TSA gets to check you out, the better they can size up what to steal, which old or handicapped person to assault, and which kids make the best molestation targets. You don’t really think the GED challenged give a hoot about security do.
