Traveling is exciting and fun but everything comes with a price. The waiting time at the airports is the most irritating part of traveling. Even the most patient people lose their control at the long waiting times on the airports. But the worst part is that these wait times are not getting any better. They are only getting worse. Traveling became more tense due to the unpredictable weather, maintenance problems and staff shortage. In US, TSA keeps track of waiting times at all security checkpoints at the airports. MyTSA app provides you all the information regarding the time it might take at every airport. At international airports, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) records the wait time for all incoming passengers.
