ABIA to open new screening area

Tuesday, May 12, 2015 by Mark Richardson

A new passenger screening checkpoint will soon be operational as the terminal addition known as the Terminal East Infill Project nears completion at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. The new screening checkpoint is expected to open in early June. ABIA officials say it will have six screening lanes and create a new connection in the terminal from the east ticket lobby to the concourse near Gate 5. Opening the new checkpoint will mark the completion of all new passenger processing areas created by the project. The lower level of the addition opened with the debut of the new customs area in December 2014. Completion of the Terminal East Infill will occur in phases throughout this summer. Still to be finished are administrative offices and two new bag carousels for travelers on domestic flights. The new bag carousels are scheduled to open in late summer 2015.
