Passenger traffic on airplanes is still a fraction of what it was a year ago at this time. When the downturn started, airports looked like ghost towns, sitting there as before but with no people to be seen.
While the number of people flying is trending upwards at a gradual pace, the staff has now been adjusted to the new levels. Fewer passengers checking in doesn’t necessarily mean shorter lines at security because fewer lanes are open than before. If you were hesitant about flying because you were trying to avoid crowds due to health conditions, you might be having second thoughts.
VeriFLY is a contactless system at Denver International Airport offering VIP-style treatment for at-risk passengers who reserve a time to go through the security checkpoint.
Passengers at higher risk of contracting illnesses are encouraged to take advantage of this free program, which allows you to make a reservation to access a dedicated TSA screening lane and a reserved limited-capacity train car to the concourse.
Scanning a QR code on your phone will open the gate to the VeriFLY lane, where you’ll head right to a TSA screener. Access to the regular and TSA Precheck screeners will be available. Once through security, you will have access to a social distancing complaint train car reserved for VeriFLY users.
Access to the program is through an app on the Apple App Store and is coming soon to Google Play.
Passengers need to complete a health screening and temperature checks. Face masks or coverings are mandatory.
