TSA X-ray unit at airport repaired

A security checkpoint with a broken X-ray unit that slowed travelers Friday at Kahului Airport was repaired by midday Saturday, the Transportation Security Administration said.

“Normal TSA security checkpoint screening operations will resume immediately,” TSA spokeswoman Lorie Dankers said via email Saturday afternoon. “TSA will be fully staffed and ready to screen travelers departing OGG.”

Flyers out of Kahului Airport were urged to arrive earlier than usual on Friday afternoon due to delays caused by the damaged screening equipment.
