Denver First Category X Airport to Have AT X-Ray at All Checkpoints

On May 15, Denver International became the US's first Category X airport to achieve 100 percent Advanced Technology X-Ray screening in all lanes at all three passenger checkpoints.

"I'm very proud of our staff here, who worked day and night to get the new AT X-Ray up and running before the May 26 deadline," FSD David Bassett said of the 28 X-ray machines installed as part of TSA's Checkpoint Evolution initiative.

"We anticipate this new equipment will significantly reduce the number of bag searches, which will increase our efficiency here at Denver," said Project Manager Phil Mentesana, who oversaw installation of the new equipment.

Denver was also the first airport in the nation to achieve 100 percent electronic screening of checked bags with an in-line system.
