The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has announced that its TSA Pre✓® expedited screening program has been expanded to include seven additional domestic and international carriers bringing the number of domestic and international airlines participating in TSA Pre✓® at more than 180 U.S. airports to 37. The lists of participating airlines and airports can be found in TSA’s national press release.
For TSA Pre✓® travelers, there is no need to remove shoes, laptops, 3-1-1 liquids, belts or light jackets. TSA Pre✓® is available when departing from a U.S. airport to a foreign country, and for domestic, connecting flights after returning to the U.S. Travelers who are U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals and lawful permanent residents can apply for TSA Pre✓® for a cost of $85 for five years, or $17 per year through the TSA Pre✓® application program. Once approved, travelers will receive a “Known Traveler Number” and will have the opportunity to utilize TSA Pre✓® lanes at select security checkpoints when traveling on any of the 37 participating airlines.
Other passengers who are eligible for TSA Pre✓® include: U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Trusted Traveler programs, Global Entry, NEXUS, and SENTRI. TSA Pre✓® is also available for U.S. Armed Forces service members, Reserves and National Guard.
