Flyers departing out of Denver Airport can now use a newly released app to reserve an arrival time at a dedicated TSA screening lane. In addition, users of the airport's VeriFLY system reserve space in a limited-capacity train car for their ride from the main terminal to their departure concourse.
Denver is the first airport to offer the solution. The airport calls VeriFLY, "perfect for health-conscious passengers looking for a little more confidence in their journey through the airport."
The airport is especially encouraging passengers at higher risk of contracting illnesses, including Covid-19, to make use of the offering, which is free.
To use VeriFLY, flyers download the app on the Apple App Store. The app will also soon be available on the Google Play Store. Flyers then reserve a 15-minute check-in window for the day of their travel and are given an access code.
On the day of travel, flyers are prompted to fill out a required health questionnaire that is modeled on CDC Guidelines for determining Covid-19 exposure. Then, upon arrival at the airport, they go to the dedicated VeriFLY security lane and scan their QR access code for entry at a touchless gate. All VeriFLY users will also have their temperature taken. After that, they will proceed through security as normal, using either the standard lane or, if eligible, TSA PreCheck.
Upon reaching Denver Airport's main terminal train stop, flyers can use the same QR code to access the VeriFLY-only queue for a reserved train car. The car will be capped at 12 passengers.
The airport said it will manage lines in the dedicated VeriFLY areas by limiting the number of reservations each hour.
"VeriFly allows you to move through key elements of the airport with less contact and congestion and more safety and speed," reads an airport primer.
