Midland International Air & Space Port expanding TSA line after frequent overcrowding
11 Jul 2017
MIDLAND, TX (KWES) -
Flights out of Midland are usually carefree, but people have been dealing with overcrowding during peak flying times.
The crowding creates hassles for passengers and airport security, but soon there will be an expansion to that area for easier flying.
"It's going to really kind of change the whole footprint of the airport when you walk in," said Justine Ruff, Director of Airports. "Probably the last five or six years it's been an issue for us."
Ruff says, the TSA line is the biggest issue. It typically gets packed early in the morning, so much so, that the designated area is overflowing onto the escalator.
