Starting next week, non-fliers will be allowed past security at Pittsburgh International Airport, according to multiple reports.

On Tuesday, the airport is set to become the first in the U.S. since the 9/11 terror attacks to let those without tickets go through security checkpoints and into the terminal areas, USA TODAY reports.

That means non-fliers will be able to accompany loved ones to and from their gates as well as shop at a number of retail stores located in the Airmall, according to the Pittsburgh Post Gazette.

But, as USA TODAY reports, non-fliers must still pass through routine security screening procedures and show valid photo ID to make sure they're not on no-fly lists.

According to the Post Gazette, non-fliers will be able to access the airside building from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, using passes provided at a designated kiosk near the ticketing area.

What do you think about the change?
