PHX Adds TSA Reservation System

Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) this week announced a partnership with Copenhagen Optimization and CLEAR to offer free reservations for TSA Security Checkpoint lines, helping travelers to manage their trips and eliminate uncertainty over how long it will take to get through security.

PHX RESERVE, the new program, gives passengers the ability to schedule a specific time to get in the TSA Security Checkpoint line. Reservations can be made up to three days before a passenger’s flight. The PHX RESERVE pilot program will initially be available in Terminal 3 beginning March 1.

“We are proud Sky Harbor can offer another great service to our customers to make their travels easier and more flexible,” said Chad Makovsky, director of aviation services for the City of Phoenix Aviation Department, which oversees PHX. “What’s good for our passengers and guests is good for the air travel industry as a whole.”

Reservation times can be made for between 60 minutes and four hours before a passenger’s flight. The dedicated PHX RESERVE Security entry point will be available between 4 a.m. and 3 p.m. and passengers traveling as a group of up to 10 can also reserve an appointment as one.

“Now more than ever, travelers want a better and more predictable airport experience, and together with Sky Harbor, PHX RESERVE is providing just that,” said Michael Twersky, GM Virtual Queuing, CLEAR. “We are thrilled to partner with Sky Harbor and bring this exciting new technology to their passengers – who can travel stress free knowing they can reserve a spot in security ahead of time.”
