Come fall, getting through airport security will be faster and less intrusive for many Florida passengers.
For a special group of about 2,000 trusted travelers a day, moving through checkpoints may no longer involve removing shoes or taking out laptops. But in Florida, that option will be available only at Miami International Airport and only by invitation.
Passengers who resent having Transportation Security Administration agents see their naked, albeit fuzzy, body images will get a break if they fly out of Miami, West Palm Beach, Melbourne, Jacksonville, St. Petersburg and Tampa. That's because the TSA plans to install a new software system on the body imaging scanners that will highlight dangerous items on a generic image.
