Despite increased holiday traffic and the alleged Christmas Day attempted bombing of a Northwest Airlines flight bound for Detroit, security wait times at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport remained relatively short on Monday morning.
For most of the morning, the airport reported wait times of less than 10 minutes at the main checkpoint as well as at the smaller North and South Terminal checkpoints.
The longest wait times reported were 10 to 20 minutes at all three of the checkpoints between 7:30 and 8:30 a.m.
On Friday, a Nigerian man allegedly tried to set off an explosive on a flight landing in Detroit, resulting in additional security measures on U.S.-bound flights.
