Denver International Airport Making Minor Adjustments to the Security Checkpoints

Home

DENVER – June 14, 2022 – Starting tomorrow, June 15 at 4 a.m., Denver International Airport (DEN) in partnership with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will add a limited number of PreCheck lanes to the South Security Checkpoint and a limited number of standard screening lanes to the North Checkpoint. The additional lanes will provide passengers coming 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.

Since there only a limited number of lanes being added to each checkpoint, passengers are still strongly encouraged to use the primary checkpoints for TSA PreCheck and standard screening as outlined below. The primary checkpoints provide more screening lanes and allow for an expedited experience through the checkpoint.

North Security Checkpoint (Primary checkpoint for TSA PreCheck passengers): Open 4 a.m. to 8 p.m.

  • TSA PreCheck: This checkpoint is primarily for TSA PreCheck passengers
  • CLEAR Customers: A CLEAR lane is available on the east side of this checkpoint for travelers who are CLEAR customers with TSA PreCheck
  • Premium/Premier Traveler Lane: This lane is available on the west side of this checkpoint
  • Standard Screening: There will be up to three standard screening lanes open

South Security Checkpoint: Open 24/7 (see TSA PreCheck hours below)

  • Standard Screening: This checkpoint is dedicated to standard screening travelers
  • TSA PreCheck: There will be up to two TSA PreCheck lanes open from 4 a.m. to 8 p.m. PreCheck passengers traveling after 8 p.m. will receive an expedited screening through the standard lanes at this checkpoint.
  • CLEAR Customers: A CLEAR lane is available at this checkpoint for standard screening. CLEAR customers with TSA PreCheck may use this lane, but are strongly encouraged to utilize the lane on the North Security Checkpoint for a more efficient experience

A-Bridge Security Checkpoint: Open from approximately 4:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

  • Standard Screening: This checkpoint is dedicated to standard screening travelers. TSA PreCheck is not available at this checkpoint.

Due to an increase in travel during the summer, it’s recommended that passengers be inside the airport at least two hours prior to their board time. Live security wait times are available at www.flydenver.com and will be updated in the coming weeks to reflect these changes.
