Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport (MKE) has welcomed new and advanced expedited security screening lanes. MKE is the first airport in Wisconsin and 45th across the U.S. to install the screens. The launch is expected to create 34 jobs and generate more than $2.6 million in local economic activity.
Milwaukee International Airport Director, Brian Dranzik said: “We’re confident passengers will love the new technology and take advantage of the opportunity to travel faster through the airport.”
Passengers can utilise the network of dedicated lanes to verify their identity with their eyes or fingers, replacing the need to take out their wallet and driver’s license. After verification, members are escorted through to the dedicated lane and directly to TSA physical security, reducing the amount of time spent waiting in line at the security checkpoint.
Milwaukee County Executive, David Crowley added: “Their investment in the airport and in the Milwaukee community at large is just one more reason to choose MKE every time when traveling to or from Wisconsin.”
