United Airlines announced the introduction of automated screening at its TSA PreCheck security checkpoint in Terminal 1 of Chicago O’Hare International Airport.

As many as five passengers at at time can fill bins with their belongings in each lane, and thereby moving through the process at a quicker pace. To further lessen the wait, the lanes use a conveyor system to automatically return empty bins to the front of the line.

The lanes have automated belts that move bags into the X-ray machines while diverting bags that require further screening, a key feature that allows bins behind them to continue through the screening process uninterrupted.

United installed a total of three automated screening lanes at Terminal 1 of the airport.

Last month, the airline opened similar automated screening lanes at Los Angeles International Airport. The carrier also said that it expects to open such lanes at Newark liberty International Airport before the Thanksgiving holiday.
