TSA will add 300 more enhanced screening machines to airports this summer

After successful tests last summer, the Transportation Security Administration has been slowly introducing its new “Computed Tomography” screening machines to airports across the country. The enhanced units provide 3D imaging, giving screeners a much better look at the items being inspected.  This is expected to eliminate the need for travelers to remove electronic devices, liquids and other select items from carry-on luggage.  The TSA said it will install 300 new units at various airports starting this summer. The enhanced CT screening machines are already in place at select checkpoints as follows: 

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL)

Baltimore-Washington International Airport (BWI)

Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD)

Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG)

Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW)

Houston Hobby Airport (HOU)

Indianapolis International Airport (IND)

John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK)

Logan International Airport (BOS)

Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)

Oakland International Airport (OAK)
