The TSA PreCheck® program provides qualifying travelers with a variety of benefits, including a quicker and more convenient airport experience.
Qualifying passengers can move through security at a quicker pace without stopping to remove their shoes, belts, light jackets, laptops and liquids. With benefits such as these, travelers are less likely to wait in long lines or miss their flights, providing them with a more relaxed and enjoyable traveling experience. Children aged 12 and under may also enjoy the benefits of TSA PreCheck® if they are travelling with eligible passenger.
