SAVANNAH, GA – May 31, 2014     Passengers departing Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport should plan to arrive early and allow extra time to clear the TSA checkpoint due to screening equipment malfunction. Saturday morning an X-Ray machine used in the TSA Pre-Check lane malfunctioned requiring security personnel to route all passengers through two operational lanes. With increased weekend and Monday morning traffic, Airport officials are encouraging departing passengers to arrive a minimum of two, to two and one-half hours prior to flight time to ensure they make an on time departure.  TSA officials are anticipating that the Pre-Check lane will be closed at least through Monday, June 2.
