Rick Husband International Airport to get security upgrade

Amarillo, TX - Amarillo's Rick Husband International Airport is set to get a major security upgrade.

Starting next month, brand new state-of-the art baggage handling systems will be installed at the airport.

These include multiple units of the latest explosive detection equipment supplied by TSA.

If all goes according to plan, the new screenings should be up and running by the time the new terminal opens in May of 2011.

The entire price tag for the new terminal, including the new baggage screenings, comes in at around $52 million.
