As of today, TSA Pre✓® has been expanded to include eligible customers of JetBlue Airways who utilize the airline’s mobile app. Today’s announcement makes a total of nine domestic carriers, including: Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Hawaiian Airlines, Southwest Airlines, United Airlines, US Airways and Virgin America.
In order to use TSA Pre✓®, JetBlue customers must utilize their mobile app boarding pass at the security checkpoint. JetBlue will expand its participation in TSA Pre✓® to include paper boarding passes (printed at home, from the check-in desk or from the kiosk in the departure lobby) by 2014.
If a JetBlue passenger is eligible for expedited screening, a TSA Pre✓® indicator will be embedded in the barcode of their mobile app boarding pass so that when scanned at the checkpoint, the passenger may be referred to a TSA Pre✓® lane. JetBlue will also place a TSA Pre✓® indicator directly on the mobile app boarding pass so passengers will know in advance that they have been cleared for expedited screening.
TSA Pre✓® is an expedited screening program that allows pre-approved airline travelers to leave on their shoes, light outerwear and belt, keep their laptop in its case and their 3-1-1 compliant liquids/gels bag in a carry-on in select screening lanes. TSA Pre✓® operations are available at more than 100 airports nationwide, with nearly 20 of those locations offering expedited screening to JetBlue customers. More than 20 million passengers have experienced TSA Pre✓® since it launched in October 2011.
