Alexa Skills: Airport Security Line Wait Times for Travelers

I’m one of those travelers who is just fine being at the airport a couple hours before my flight takes off. I prefer stress-free travel and will take the extra time to browse the airport shops, sit down with a coffee, or catch up on reading my Kindle magazine subscriptions.

But, for those who like to make it to their gate with only minutes to spare, or are running late due to the manic occurrences of life, there’s a handy new skill for Alexa called, Airport Security Line Wait Times.

Once enabled, you can simply ask Alexa any of the following:

Alexa, ask security line what is the wait time at CVG terminal 2?
Alexa, ask security line how long is the security line at Cincinnati terminal 2?
Alexa, ask security line how long is security at CVG?

The skill supports over 450 U.S. airports and is based on the MyTSA API.

You can find the skill in the Alexa app or by linking here: Airport Security Line Wait Times

Alexa is available for Amazon devices Echo, Dot, Tap, Fire tablets, and Fire TV, but also on iOS, Android, and the web with
