Tsa Plans To Expand Their Pre-screening Program

One of the most annoying things about travel is having to walk in the security lines without your shoes, jacket and belt on. Although these actions may be necessary in this age of terrorism, they are still a thorn in the side to many frequent travelers.

If you are an avid traveler who secures flight insurance frequently, and is growing tired of removing your clothing items at every airport you travel through, prepare yourself for some good news. The Transportation Security Administration recently announced that they are expanding the expedited pre-screening program to 60 additional airports. This brings the total number of airports participating in this program to 100, throughout the United States. By the end of 2013, all of the terminals associated with the program will have select checkpoints, and those 40 airports that already participate in the program will have even more lanes available for frequent travelers.

The TSA Pre™ program allows pre-approved airline travelers to keep their shoes, belts and light outerwear on during screenings. The program also allows pre-approved passengers to keep their laptops and TSA-compliant liquids in their carry-on bags. Since October 2011, more than 15 million passengers have entered the program and experienced these benefits."As TSA continues to move away from a one-size-fits-all approach to transportation security, we are looking for more opportunities to provide the most effective security in the most efficient way possible," said TSA Administrator John S. Pistole. "Expanding TSA Pre™ to more locations enables many more passengers across the country to experience expedited screening," Pistole said. Faster screenings at airports could be in your future

If a passenger is involved with TSA Pre™, their boarding pass's barcode will indicate that they do not need to take the necessary actions of regular travelers, such as removing articles of clothing, and can proceed to the TSA Pre™ lanes. Even though this does allow pre-approved passengers to move through faster, the TSA warned that they will always periodically perform random security measures at airports for the overall safety of everyone involved in air travel.

Airlines that are already involved in the program include Alaska Airlines, Delta Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, United Airlines, US Airways, Virgin America and American Airlines. Once JetBlue and Southwest Airlines are operationally ready, they are also expected to become part of the expedited program.
