Miami Airport Closes Security Checkpoint at Terminal G Due To TSA Shortage

MIA Concourse D

Miami International Airport (MIA) will close one of its terminals over the weekend in order to send TSA workers to busier checkpoints.

MIA spokesman Greg Chin told the Miami Herald that the security checkpoint at Terminal G would be closed beginning at 1 p.m. on Saturday. Terminal G, used by United, Bahamasair and other airlines, will reopen for morning flights on Sunday. It will then close again at 1 p.m., Chin said. The plan is to repeat the schedule Monday, with the possibility of the hours returning to normal during the week.

As a precautionary measure due to uncertainties created by the lapse in federal government funding, some passengers at Miami International Airport may experience changes to their security checkpoint and departure gate this weekend.
