If you plan on flying out of Denver International Airport, plan on giving yourself more time to get through security.

The process can now take almost an hour since Transportation Security Administration agents took over the job of checking travel documents on Wednesday.

Prior to the change, airlines checked passengers' identification. The TSA says it will do a more thorough job, causing longer delays at checkpoints.

The bottom line: until the TSA document checkers get more comfortable with the new system, plan on arriving at DIA two hours before the flight.
