SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Passengers departing from the Savannah Hilton-Head International Airport could experience delays because of extra time needed to go through TSA checkpoints.

TSA Checkpoints could be slower because of a recent equipment malfunction, specifically an x-ray machine used in the TSA Pre-Check lane.

Because of increased flight traffic on Weekends and Mondays not having this xray machine properly working will back up the high volume of travelers.

Airport officials are encouraging travelers to arrive at least 2 hours prior to flight time to ensure that they have a smooth departure.

TSA officials plan to have the x-ray machine on the Pre-check lane fixed by Monday, June 2nd at the latest.
