On Thursday morning, images of a crowed Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport began circulating on social media.

  • While the initial claims were that the delays were due to the new Allegiant terminal that opened this week, it turns out, it is due to significant TSA staffing shortages.

As of 10:00am on Thursday morning, the airport had resolved the line issues.
