Effective Monday, August 19, there will be changes to the security checkpoints at Minneapolis-St Paul International Airport’s Terminal 1 due to remodeling in the ticket lobby.
The work is being undertaken in phases within the South checkpoint, meaning that there is less space for screening. From August 19, all TSA PreCheck and CLEAR PreCheck passengers will use the South Security checkpoint only. Airport employees will also use this checkpoint, freeing up space for passengers in the North Checkpoint.
All other passengers, including standard, First Class/Sky Priority and CLEAR Standard passengers will use the North Checkpoint only.
Signs and audio messages will alert passengers in locations where they are most likely to make their security screening choice. Airport staff and volunteers will also be available to direct people.
Remodeling is expected to be complete by mid-December. The work is part of a broader, multi-year project to expand and remodel Terminal 1 to facilitate growing passenger numbers and enable more efficient operations.
Security checkpoints in Terminal 2 will operate as normal.
