Las Vegas airport to get automatic exit corridors

CREATED Nov 7, 2013

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- The Las Vegas airport is about to get a little more secure.

The Transportation Security Administration has approved the use of automatic exit corridors at McCarran International Airport.

The corridors are designed to prevent people from entering the secure portions of the terminals.

The system was developed Switzerland-based Kaba Group. It has been in use at the airport's new addition, Terminal 3, since it opened in 2012. The airport is now looking into installing the system in other areas.

The high-tech corridors are designed to prevent people from walking where they should not be, and to notify airport workers of intrusions.
