TSA to test screening program in Hawaii

Posted: Updated:

Honolulu (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Transportation Security Administration will test a new program to get passengers through airport screenings faster. Hawaiian airlines will eventually be a part of the program.

The process will include a pre-screening of air travelers who are willing to divulge more personal information.

It's part of the Obama administration's attempt at a more risk-based intelligence driven screening program.

The test is slated to begin this fall with about 8,000 Delta frequent fliers, it will then expand to other airlines, including Hawaiian.
