DIA making adjustments to security checkpoints

DIA recommends passengers be inside the airport at least two hours prior to their board time.

DENVER — Denver International Airport (DIA) will make some adjustments to its security checkpoints starting Wednesday, June 15, at 4 a.m.

First, DIA and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will add a "limited number" of PreCheck lanes to the South Security Checkpoint.

Second, a limited number of standard screening lanes will be added to the North Checkpoint, said DIA officials.

"The additional lanes will provide passengers arriving from the hotel and transit center on the south end and international arrivals on the north end more options to access the appropriate screening lanes on either end of the terminal," said a news release from DIA.

DIA recommends passengers be inside the airport at least two hours prior to their board time.
