Bradley International Airport Making Changes to TSA Security Lanes, Adding More Convenience for Passengers

The Connecticut Airport Authority is pleased to announce a change that will soon go into effect at the TSA security checkpoints at Bradley International Airport.

Currently, Bradley International Airport has two TSA security checkpoints inside its main terminal, Terminal A. One is centrally located in the lobby of the departures level and the second checkpoint is located between the United Airlines ticket counter and the hallway to the Sheraton Hotel.

Beginning May 1, 2024, all TSA PreCheck lanes will be relocated from the main security checkpoint to the second TSA screening checkpoint. This screening location will be dedicated for passengers enrolled in TSA PreCheck and those who have both TSA PreCheck and CLEAR.
Passengers who do not have TSA PreCheck, will continue using the general TSA screening lanes located at the main TSA screening checkpoint, which now will have additional lanes for screening.
CLEAR will remain available at both security checkpoints.
With these changes in place, the overall TSA screening process will be streamlined, creating more efficiency and convenience for all passengers.
“We are always looking for ways to enhance the security screening process and to make travel easier for our passengers, especially during busy timeframes of travel,” said Kevin A. Dillon, A.A.E., Connecticut Airport Authority Executive Director. “We would like to thank our partners with the TSA and CLEAR for helping to make this improvement possible.”
As always, passengers are still advised to arrive inside the main terminal with enough time to check in with their airline and go through the appropriate TSA security checkpoint.
