Many pilots reporting for work at Salt Lake City International Airport can now speed through security and get to their airplanes sooner under a program launched this week.
Called "Known Crewmember," the procedure applies to pilots for Delta Air Lines, SkyWest Airlines, United Airlines and Frontier Airlines. Pilots employed by other carriers serving the airport must still pass through the same screening process for passengers, said Rusty Ayers, a spokesman for the Air Line Pilots Association.
"This system takes [Delta, SkyWest, United and Frontier pilots] out of security lines. Pilots get to work faster," Ayers said.
