LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Officials of Arkansas’ largest airport say it’ll have enough Transportation Security Administration staff to prevent excessively long lines at security checkpoints during what airlines say is expected to be a record summer-travel year.

The assistant federal security director for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in Arkansas tells the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (https://bit.ly/25irYuZ ) that the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport/Adams Field is well prepared for the expected influx.

The airport has reported an increase in enrollment in the TSA PreCheck system, which expedites passenger screening at airport security checks.

Airport officials have also said that a monitoring system at the security checkpoints hasn’t detected any abnormal increases in the time it takes passengers to go through checkpoints even as more passengers are using the airport.
