After years of construction and buckets of cash, the brand new airport near Panama City, Florida has finally fired up the x-ray machines and metal detectors for the first time. Regular air service began earlier this week at Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport, and Southwest Airlines and Delta are the first carriers to bring in passengers from cities like Atlanta, Memphis, Orlando, Houston, and Baltimore. With connections through those cities, beach bums from across the country will be able to test out the new airport and the nearby sun and sand.
The place is the first new airport to open in the country since 1997, so hopefully the TSA lines will be designed a little better than the ones that have been crammed into some of the nationís older airports. We heard that our favorite government agency was going to test out some new security tricks at the new airport too, but so far there havenít been any juicy details.
