Those who do not plan to board an airplane at the Pittsburgh International Airport can go through security in a new pilot program

The Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT) plans to launch a pilot program in which non-flyers will be allowed to venture into the airport past the security checkpoints. The airport was granted permission from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to do so.

The non-passengers must approach a special desk and show a valid driver's license or passport to receive a “myPITpass” card, which allows them to pass through security points. Those looking to get the pass will receive an inspection as though they were to board a plane, with the same amount of scrutiny. Anyone on the no-fly list will not have access to this program. If security checkpoints inside the airport have a large amount of people moving through them, the program will close until things slow down.

The program starts on September 5. Should the pilot prove successful, other airports throughout the United States may inquire of the TSA to see if they can implement a similar feature.
