TSA Unveils New Plan for Security Checkpoints

Homeland Security officials today unveiled a new cuing system for passengers going through security at Port Columbus.

Federal Security Director Don Barker says passengers can pick their lane based on how often they fly - frequent flyers in one lane, families who fly less often in another. Barker says Port Columbus is the 31st airport to get what officials call the Diamond Self-Select Program.

Don Barker was appointed Federal Security Director for Port Columbus in March.
