TSA Speeding Up Screening at More Airports

But only for people in the right program


The Transportation Security Administration is expanding its Pre-check speedier screening program to 60 more airports, in addition to 40 where it was already available.

The new airports should have the expedited checkpoint lanes—where participants are allowed to keep on their belts and shoes, and leave their laptops in their bags—by the end of the year, the agency announced Wednesday.

"Expanding TSA Pre-check to more locations enables many more passengers across the country to experience expedited screening," says TSA Administrator John Pistole.
