If you're flying out of town soon, be prepared for the longest wait times in the country through the TSA checkpoint at MSP.
According to Fox 9, Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport reported the longest TSA security checkpoint wait times in the country on Monday due to the partial government shutdown.
On average, fliers were waiting 46 minutes at the checkpoint, TSA says. The normal wait time is an average of around 30 minutes. Pre-check fliers waited five minutes maximum.
TSA workers have officially gone over four weeks without pay, and had 7.5% unscheduled absences.
