TSA PreCheck® is an expedited screening program for low-risk travelers to get through security more efficiently at more than 200 US airports. Enrolled passengers do not have to remove their shoes, belts, or light jackets, and they can keep laptops, approved liquids, and food in their bags. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) says that around 99% of TSA PreCheck® passengers wait less than 10 minutes at participating airport checkpoints.
Today, the TSA announced some new airlines being added to the TSA PreCheck® expedited screening program. Passengers on Cayman Airways, French bee, Titan Air, and Zipair will now be able to participate. The total number of participating carriers climbs to 90 with these four carriers.
TSA PreCheck® is available for eligible passengers when departing from a US airport or when connecting on domestic flights within the United States. Travelers who are US citizens, US nationals, or US lawful permanent residents are eligible for TSA PreCheck®.
Enrolled passengers will see TSA Pre✓® (possibly written as TSAPRECHK, TSA PRE, or TSA Pre✓®) on their boarding passes and will then be able to use these dedicated lanes.
Anthony’s Take: TSA PreCheck® has saved me countless hours and the frustration of having to take off my shoes, remove my laptop and liquids, and wait behind passengers who might not travel often. The program has been great and it’s nice to see it continue to expand.
