TSA international checkpoint fully opens inside Boston Logan’s new Terminal E enhancing security experience

A new, more convenient international passenger security checkpoint is open at Boston Logan International Airport. It enhances the security experience for travellers going through the TSA screening process.

A new, more convenient international passenger security checkpoint is ready for full operation at Boston Logan International Airport. The new E3 checkpoint will enhance the security experience for international travellers going through the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) security screening process.

The new more modern checkpoint is part of a massive, $800 million Terminal E renovation project. The new checkpoint includes seven new security screening lanes and was designed and constructed with input from TSA. The focus of the project is to improve security, enhance the efficiency of the screening process and increase the passenger queueing area to support additional throughput.

“We have watched with anticipation as the E3 Security Checkpoint was under construction,” said Bob Allison, TSA’s Federal Security Director for Massachusetts. “We are looking forward to working in this new space where TSA officers will have more spacious and state-of-the-art technologies to carry-out their important security duties.”

The seven new screening lanes in the E3 checkpoint contain state-of-the-art computed tomography (CT) scanners. The E2 checkpoint will serve as an overflow checkpoint during heavy volume periods. When the CTs are in use, travellers do not need to remove electronics or travel-size liquids from carry-on luggage.
