GREENSBORO, N.C. — Officials at Piedmont Triad International Airport are recommending passengers arrive 90 minutes early for domestic flights.

Airport officials blame the installation of new security equipment and parking garage construction for the increased length of time it’s taking travelers to get through security screening.

“Our passengers are accustomed to a very convenient airport with short lines and not much delay between the parking lot and the boarding gates,” said Kevin Baker, the airports executive director.

“We hope passengers will bear with us as we get through these transitions because we pride ourselves on being a very user-friendly airport.”

For international flights, passengers should arrive at least two hours early.

The work will continue through the summer and fall.
