The TSA has been using CT scanners to screen airline passengers’ luggage since last year — early tests of the technology have been taking place in Phoenix’s Sky Harbor International Airport and Boston’s Logan International Airport. But now, the agency has shared its plans for CT technology going forward, including expansions into additional airports. American Airlines announced earlier this month that a CT scanner was being set up in New York’s JFK airport and the TSA says Baltimore-Washington International Airport, Chicago O’Hare International Airport, Los Angeles International Airport and Washington-Dulles International Airport are among those that will have CT scanners in the near future.
After anticipating extra long airport security lines this year, the Transportation Security Administration has taken steps to fix the problem. Their latest solution involves adding new screening technology to Chicago (O’Hare), Dallas/Fort Worth, Los Angeles, and Miami. They’ll also include a pilot program in Phoenix.
