Airport officials say the change is part of an overall upgrade and redesign of its screening areas. They say the changes will allow the airport to accommodate more passengers and will ensure quicker movement through screening.

The full-body scanners can alert Transportation Security Administration employees to explosives and nonmetal weapons. A spokesman for the South Jersey Transportation Authority tells The Press of Atlantic City the airport will be able to have five lanes screening passengers at the same time if needed.

The airport is also expanding the number of gates from seven to 10. That project is expected to be done by June.
