What is TSA Pre
TSA Pre is a new trusted traveler type program which offers passengers the ability to qualify for expedited screening based on their threat level. If a person is determined to be less of a safety risk and has been invited to participate, they will be referred to a line with expedited screening which may include no longer removing:
- 3-1-1 compliant bag from carry-on
- Laptop from bag
- Light outerwear/jacket
Visit TSA.gov if you are interested in seeing if you qualify for this or other prescreening processes.
