Travelers could soon be able to keep their shoes on while going through security at more airports around the country.
The U.S. Transportation Security Administration said Wednesday that it will expand faster screening lanes to 100 airports by year end, up from 40 now, including Salt Lake City International. The agency says the expansion is part of its attempt to make screening more effective by breaking away from a single approach at all airports.
Under the Pre-Check program, qualified passengers don't have to remove their shoes, light jackets and belts. They can keep laptops in cases, and liquids and gels in their carry-on bags.
