Five more airlines joined the TSA PreCheck program!

Posted on August 17, 2019 by in Travel News

The Transportation Security Administration has added five new airlines to the PreCheck expedited screening program. PreCheck passengers flying with Austrian Airlines, Swoop, Philippine Airline, VivaAerobus, and Interjet will now be able to move through the airport without removing their shoes or taking out their laptops.

What is the PreCheck program?

The TSA’s PreCheck program allows eligible passengers to register their personal and biometric information before they get to the airport. That allows the passengers to move through security checkpoints more quickly, with the TSA claiming that with the PreCheck program you can be done in only 5 minutes!

Airlines using the PreCheck program

There are now more than 70 airlines participating in the PreCheck program, which represents considerable growth considering that there were only 54 airlines in the program a year ago. Over 200 airports in the USA support the PreCheck program as well.
