Screening for Passengers 75 and Older

Passengers 75 and older can receive some form of expedited screening through risk-based intelligence-driven security that allows TSA to better focus resources on passengers who more likely pose a risk.


You may leave on your shoes however; removal of light jackets is required for Advanced Imaging Technology screening.

If the alarm goes off during security screening, you may be required to remove your shoes for further screening or undergo a pat-down. You can request to be seated during this portion of the screening.

Passengers 75 and older who are unable to stand for screening will be screened through other security methods.

Should you travel with medical devices and/or implants, other screening procedures may apply.

To File a Complaint

If your screening experience did not meet your expectations, speak with a supervisor at the checkpoint. You may also submit your concern(s) to the TSA Contact Center.
