It's a big travel time in many parts of the world, especially in the United States. If you're an international traveler, I hear that the lines to enter through U.S. customs can be pretty ridiculous.

[Update: Tampa (TPA) and Raleigh-Durham (RDU)] Mobile Passport app now works at airports in San Jose and Minneapolis-St. Paul

The US Customs and Border Patrol's mobile passport app has been out for a little over a year. Lately they've been adding the streamlined customs process to approximately one airport a month, which means that every passenger airport in the country should get official support in the next few decades. Maybe by then the country's air travel system won't be a farcical crap-fest of corporate greed and government incompetence.

US Mobile Passport Now Supported At Dallas-Fort Worth Airport, The Third-Busiest In The World

As far as US airports go, Dallas-Fort Worth isn't terrible. DFW is enormous, the third-busiest on the planet in terms of aircraft movements (behind O'Hare in Chicago and Hartsfield in Atlanta), largely due to being the central hub of American Airlines and an ideal mid-continental stopover for the United States and North America as a whole. Considering all of that, it's not all that bad... assuming you can get through the maze of city-wide construction in Fort Worth and actually make it to the damned place. Today getting out of the airport will be a little easier if you're using the US Customs and Border Patrol's Mobile Passport app.

Mobile Passport App Now Lets You Skip The Line At San Francisco International Airport (SFO)

Mobile Passport lets you be that guy who gets to skip the regular line at the airport just by pulling out your phone.
