The TSA’s PreCheck program is set to expand to 60 more airports this year, reports Reuters. So how can you take advantage of it?
The Transportation Security Administration’s expedited screening program is already available at 40 airports, and with the upcoming expansion, it will soon operate at 100 airports in 40 states, along with Guam and Puerto Rico.
TSA also plans to increase the number of PreCheck lanes at participating airports in the coming weeks.
What Is TSA PreCheck?
TSA PreCheck is an expedited version of the agency’s usual screening process. Eligible travelers who can use PreCheck can keep their shoes, light outerwear, and belt on as they go through security. They also do not need to take their laptop computers out of their cases, nor do they need to remove their appropriately-sized liquids from their carry-on bags.
In providing this option at more airports across the country, TSA hopes it will ensure a smoother, more effective, and more efficient security check.
