The new employee screening checkpoint, with an entrance across from the TGI Friday’s near the airport atrium, is not open to passengers.
A total of 40,000 employees at the airport work in secure areas, and the airport wants all of them to have the expectation that they may go through screening. But not all of them will go through the new checkpoint.
Employees of the airport’s biggest operator, Delta Air Lines, won’t use the checkpoint. The airline says it will continue spot checks at employee shuttle lots and plans more extensive screening in the future.
Concessions workers also go through TSA checkpoints, while flight crews go through an expedited screening process.
