Airport Update

Sunday, September 5, 2004; Page P02

Las Vegas's McCarran International has added seven lanes to the security area for concourses C and D, bringing the count up to 19 lanes, including two for special needs passengers and three "flex" lanes (which can be used for those headed to either area). Also of note: Later in the fall, the airport will roll out a pilot program for its SpeedCheck kiosks -- which have been providing boarding passes for multiple airlines since 2002 -- that will process passengers with checked luggage . . . Brussels Airport just installed three kiosks that use similar McCarran-like CUSS (Common Use Self Service) technology . . . Through Dec. 21, Rijksmuseum Amsterdam Schiphol, an outpost of the Netherlands' largest museum, will feature eight works by Jan Steen. Look for the free exhibit, open daily from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., past passport control between the E and F piers . . . At Louisville International, finding your gate became a bit easier with the christening of the two previously unnamed concourses, now called A (with gates A1 through A14) and B (gates B2 through B19). It's part of a $41 million renovation project. -- Anne McDonough
