The Department of Homeland Security announced that they have added a further seven airlines to TSA Precheck. The new additions cover both international and domestic carriers. This brings the total number of airlines that are registered with the expedited prescreening program to
37 47 52 as of May 2018
New carriers to join the TSA Precheck program are:
- Copa Airlines
- Dominican Wings
- InterCaribbean Airways
- Silver Airways
- Singapore Airlines
- Swift Air
- Turkish Airlines
While it is great news for travelers that the TSA Precheck program has expanded, who now have greater choice and options, sometimes too many choices and options can be confusing. With so many different expedited security programs such as Global Entry, Nexus and CLEAR available, which is the best for you?
Finding out is relatively easy–just head over to the Department of Homeland Security website, and use their matching tool to find which program best fits you. With TSA Precheck now available in 180 airports, and so many trusted travelers’ programs, there is nothing to stop you getting through those lines quickly.
If you decide to enroll in one of the trusted traveler programs, don’t forget to check your credit cards first, since many premium cards will provide you with an enrollment credit to offset the cost of joining the programs.
The addition of new airlines means that the TSA Precheck program has expanded significantly since January 2017, when 11 new airlines joined. This can only be excellent news since it adds more options and greater choice for travelers, which is never a bad thing. Is your favorite airline now a member of TSA Precheck?
