Airport security

Airport security

The Transportation Security Administration is expanding its expedited screening program to international airlines with Canada being the first country to take advantage of this program.

This PreCheck program was introduced for passengers traveling within the US in 2011. Those who have passed an extensive background check by the TSA are able to proceed to a PreCheck line. There they do not have to remove their jackets, shoes, or belts and their liquids can remain in their carry-on bag. They also can leave their laptops in the carry case. Almost 5 million of the 14 million passengers who fly each week receive a PreCheck logo on their boarding pass and received expedited screening through the TSA security lines.

At many airports some regular customers are randomly pulled from the regular security check-in line and put through the expedited line because twice as many passengers can be moved through the process in the same amount of time.

If you travel a lot and are interested in the TSA Pre-Check Application Program you must be a U.S. citizen, U.S. national or Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) and cannot have been convicted of certain crimes. There is a nonrefundable application processing fee of $85. After completing enrollment, successful applicants will receive a Known Traveler Number (KTN) which is valid for five years.
