TSA PreCheck announced that three more airlines have joined the program. The new carriers eligible for the program are European airlines Norwegian Air and Icelandair and small U.S. regional carrier Via Air. With the additions, 56 domestic and international airlines are now part of the PreCheck program, which is available at 200 airports. The program rose past 5 million participants last July.
How does TSA Pre✓ Work?
If you’re eligible and approved for the TSA Pre✓® program, you will be given a Known Traveler Number “KTN” to use when making flight reservations. KTNs can also be saved in an airline or travel agency profile. Participating airlines will print a TSA Pre✓® indicator on your boarding pass. When you arrive at the airport, look for signs for the TSA Pre✓® lanes and present your boarding pass and Government-issued ID to the Travel Document Checker. Children ages 12 and under may join you in the TSA Pre✓® lane.
