As promised, TSA is moving forward with the TSA Pre✓™ pilot, and what better way to kick off 2012 than with the addition of two more airports – Salt Lake City (SLC) and John F. Kennedy (JFK) – to the program.
There are a lot of moving pieces, so here’s a quick look at next steps for the pilot in the coming months:
United Airlines and US Airways will begin offering the program to their eligible frequent flyers
Minneapolis and SLC will offer the program to pilot participants traveling on Delta
Los Angeles and JFK will also come on board for participants traveling on American
Stay tuned! US Airways and United recently began notifying their eligible frequent fliers, and TSA will announce more details on start dates and locations at new airports as soon as we have them. TSA also plans to build on the pilot’s initial success and continue expanding the program to additional airlines and airports once they are operationally ready.
We’ve received positive feedback from the overwhelming majority of the nearly 200,000 passengers who have been screened through TSA Pre✓™ since the pilot rolled out. TSA continues to gather encouraging feedback from those who have experienced the program at the participating airports [Atlanta (ATL), Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW), Detroit (DTW), Miami (MIA) and Las Vegas’ McCarran (LAS) airports].
