New Baggage Screening Equipment at Ithaca-Tompkins Airport Expected to Improve Customer Experience
The Ithaca-Tompkins Regional Airport is getting new baggage scanning equipment to speed up the loading of departing flights.
 
U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer announced Wednesday that the airport will get the new baggage scanner this spring.
 
The scanner will be used by TSA agents, who currently must hand-check each piece of checked baggage, which has created delays especially with early-morning departures.
 
Schumer says the new scanner will help the Ithaca-Tompkins airport compete with other similar sized airports and will help improve security.
 
Ithaca airport manager Bob Nicholas is hoping the new baggage screener will improve customer experience and in turn attract more travelers and economic activity to the Ithaca area. 
 
Schumer said that the automated screening system will be up an running in the next six weeks.
