Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport has been working to address the problem of long wait times at TSA checkpoints. During busy periods of the day, the wait times can be close to an hour long, with lines at the main checkpoint in the domestic terminal stretching through the atrium and sometimes into baggage claim.
Bastian said the Transportation Security Administration is also working with Hartsfield-Jackson on a pilot project with a new security lane system to ease the traffic flow, which is expected to be constructed in the next 30 to 60 days.
He said Delta has also offered staffing to help supplement the TSA for clearing queues.
"We're all familiar with the staffing issues," Bastian said. "We're helping them speed the screening checkpoints."
