About TSA PreCheck:

TSA PreCheck is an expedited screening program that enables identified low-risk air travelers to enjoy a smart and efficient screening experience. TSA Pre✓® benefits are available through participating airlines at more than 200 U.S. airports.

Enrolled members get the most convenient experience with the least amount of physical contact in screening: no need for screening bins, shoes/belts stay on, and laptops/liquids/food remain in the carry-on luggage. It’s also a great option for families, as children under 12 can join parents/guardians with TSA Pre✓® in the dedicated screening lanes.

The TSA Pre✓® screening credential lasts for five years and costs $85. Enrolling is quick and easy: a short five-minute online application followed by a 10-minute in-person appointment. Once approved, travelers will receive a “Known Traveler Number,” which needs to be added to a traveler’s airline profile and reservations in order to take advantage of the TSA Pre✓® benefits at security checkpoints.
