TSA-Pre Eases Airport Security

November 23rd, 2013

Looking to make a swift run through the security checkpoint? Now TSA has introduced a process that will allow more U.S. Citizens to enroll in TSA-Pre, an expedited screening process that allows passengers who have been pre-approved through this program to pass through security without having to remove their shoes, light outerwear or belt, while keeping their laptop in their case and the 3-1-1 compliant liquids in their carry-on bag while passing through the designated lanes.

At one point, those eligible for TSA-Pre, could only opt in through a frequent flier program or be enrolled in a Trusted Traveler program. Now U.S. citizens will be able to apply online and visit an enrollment site where they can provide their ID and fingerprints.

Currently, TSA-Pre is currently available at 97 airports nationwide. Eligible passengers traveling on Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Hawaiian Airlines, United Airlines, US Airways and Virgin America may receive expedited screening in TSA-Pre lanes.This application program will require applicants to allow a background check, fingerprints, and comes with an enrollment fee. However it is important to note that TSA will always conduct random and unpredictable security measures and thus enrolling in TSA-Pre does not guarantee an expedited screening process.
