TSA PreCheck®. If you’ve traveled through domestic airports in the past few years, chances are you know us. You’ve watched from the standard screening lane, eyes green with envy, as travelers enter the TSA PreCheck lanes and cruise right through while you’re left waiting in line.

Maybe one of the following ran through your head as you watch fellow passengers speed through the TSA PreCheck lane:

  • “What if I miss my flight because I didn’t allow enough time for my security screening?”
  • “Why don’t they have to take off their shoes? How do they make it look so effortless and easy?”
  • “Why didn’t I register for TSA PreCheck last time I traveled?”

The benefits of TSA PreCheck®:

We’re here to help you travel with ease. With TSA PreCheck®, not only will you experience shorter wait times, but you won’t have to go through any of those pesky things like rummaging through your carry-on for liquids, gels and aerosols or taking your laptop out of its bag.

  • If you’re a member of one of these credit card and loyalty programs, your TSA PreCheck application fee may be covered.
