Speed though airport security
Many large airports have additional screening points that, while out of the way, are seldom used and offer quicker service. To find the best checkpoint to use, log onto the Transportation Security Administration website, which lists security checkpoints at every U.S. airport and publishes the average wait times by the hour. It helps to know the layout at your airport, most are horseshoe shaped and have multiple screening points. If the terminals are connected beyond security, you can enter through the least busy line and make your way back to your gate. At airports with one central security checkpoint, the shorter lines are usually on the other edges. Airports with hotels attached have a separate security entrance for guests, but anyone may use it.
