Branson Airport maintains a TSA-run security system. All Departing passengers are required to pass through a screening checkpoint that includes metal detection, bag x-ray, and visual inspection processes. To avoid unnecessary delays for themselves and others, travelers should familiarize themselves with TSA requirements and procedures when packing their luggage and carry-on items.

Branson Airport is a proud participant in the TSA Pre✓(R) program. TSA Precheck passengers can enjoy expedited screening.

Passed by Congress in 2005, the REAL ID Act enacted the 9/11 Commission’s recommendation that the Federal Government “set standards for the issuance of sources of identification, such as driver’s licenses.” The Act established minimum security standards for state-issued driver’s licenses and identification cards and prohibits Federal agencies from accepting for official purposes licenses and identification cards from states that do not meet these standards. States have made considerable progress in meeting this key recommendation of the 9/11 Commission and every state has a more secure driver’s license today than before the passage of the Act.
