Update from DEN: Monday morning passengers at DEN experienced significant lines across all security screening checkpoints resulting in lengthy wait times to get through security.

We’ve been in contact with local and national TSA leadership to understand what resources and staffing they had in place this morning, how the lanes were being operated, what advance planning took place, traffic projections, equipment issues and more. At the same time, we are reviewing our own operation regarding how we manage the lines outside the checkpoint. TSA and DEN continue to work together in partnership to address the challenges we are having so that we can best accommodate the numbers of passengers traveling through DEN, particularly at peak times. We are encouraged by the performance of the equipment in the new West Security Checkpoint and the vast majority of times, wait times are below 10 minutes. However, we know there was a problem during peak time on the morning of Feb. 26 and we are going to do everything we can possibly do, working with TSA and our airlines, to fix this situation. Our passengers deserve an amazing, efficient and positive travel experience and we are committed to providing just that.

About Kinetic Air Light Curtain

“Kinetic Air Light Curtain” consists of a grouping of 5,280 propellers laid out on a grid system that changes configurations as the train passes. The propellers are made of reflective stainless steel and are 12-inches in diameter. The work, which includes blue fluorescent lighting, encompasses the entire mile of the train tunnel journey. The propellers are activated by physical phenomena already existing in the tunnel, including light from the train and wind generated by the movement of the train.
