The Transportation Security Administration announced on Thursday the addition of four non-U.S. airlines to the PreCheck trusted traveler program.
The list of new airlines includes Air France, Brussels Airlines, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, and Philippine Airlines.
The PreCheck program first launched in October of 2011.
Currently, members of Customs and Border Protection’s Trusted Traveler programs such as Global Entry, Sentri, and Nexus flying on a participating airline are eligible to use PreCheck’s expedited screening lanes as are those who enroll directly in the program. Military personnel on active duty are also eligible to use PreCheck.
The PreCheck program first launched in October of 2011 and over 115 airports in the United States offer PreCheck.
Passengers who transit a PreCheck security checkpoint don’t have to remove certain items of clothing, such as shoes, belts, and light outerwear, and can leave laptops and liquids in their carry-on luggage.
