Expedited Security Screenings for Low-Risk Air Travelers

advertisement

There's some good news for travelers.

In addition to the Transportation Security Administration's (TSA) announcement to allow additional travelers to apply for expedited security screenings, the TSA said it will also randomly select low-risk passengers to be part of the speedier process on a flight-by-flight basis.

The TSA said it will use the information customers already provide when booking a flight to determine which passengers are lower risk.

If you are selected, the bar code on your boarding pass will be embedded with a code that will tell security you are approved for the TSA Pre-check lane.

The TSA told News4 this new initiative will be at all U.S. airports, and it will take effect in time for Thanksgiving travel.
