NEWARK - If flying is your means of travel this holiday weekend, TSA officials are advising travelers to get there early.

TSA is being tested since lines in recent weeks across the country have caused passengers to miss flights, with some customers having to stand in lines for two hours.

In order to help expedite the process, Newark airport has hired 120 new TSA officers and nine more canine units.

Both will not be in place until mid-June.

In the meantime, the Department of Homeland Security suggests travelers arrive to the airport two hours early if flying domestic and look into TSA pre-check.
