TSA Pre?™ allows select frequent flyers as well as members of U.S. Customs and Border Protection Trusted Traveler programs, who fly on participating airlines, to receive expedited screening benefits during domestic travel. Eligible participants use dedicated screening lanes for benefits which include keeping shoes, light outerwear and belts on, as well as the option to leave laptops and 3-1-1 compliant liquids in carry-on bags.
In recent news, Delta, United, and US Airways are now alerting qualified passengers of their Pre? status with a “TSA Pre?” alert on mobile and paper boarding passes. This update comes in response to many eligible passengers often being unaware of their Pre? status or being unsure of which checkpoint line to join.
Delta and US Airways passengers will see “TSA Pre?” on printed boarding passes and, by the end of next week, the TSA Pre? logo will be on those airlines’ mobile boarding passes. On United, the TSA Pre? logo is currently only on printed boarding passes.
More details about the Pre? program and eligibility are on the TSA website.
