Charlotte Security Checkpoint Wait Times Now Available At The Airport

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Anyone traveling at Charlotte Douglas International Airport can view security checkpoint wait times now through CLT’s website and app before arriving at the terminal, according to a news release.

Airport officials say they have partnered with CrowdVision to provide this new technology making travel planning easier.

“Time is valuable, especially at an airport,” said Acting Aviation Director Haley Gentry. “This is a great tool that enhances the passenger experience by identifying the shortest security checkpoint wait time with a glance at your phone.”

The new technology uses light detection and ranging sensors (LIDAR) that measure the reflection of light to gauge wait times, according to a news release.

Officials say any travelers looking to use this service can click here or download at the App Store or on Google Play to view wait times at each of the checkpoints, including Standard and TSA Pre-Check lines.

“CrowdVision is proud and excited to be serving Charlotte Douglas International Airport,” said Sam Kamel, CrowdVision’s president of Americas. “We share their vision for transforming the passenger experience, making the entire curb-to-gate process more efficient, less frustrating and always focused on passenger safety.”
