John Wayne Airport this week became the 35th airport in the U.S. to offer the Transportation Security Administration’s Pre-Check program. The new program is designed to expedite the security screening process at airports for those deemed low-risk passengers.
At Checkpoint A, those who qualify for Pre-Check are likely, but not guaranteed, to pass through the security screening without having to remove shoes, belts and outerwear, without removing their laptops from their cases or their liquids from their carry-on baggage.
The TSA Pre-Check is available to U.S. citizens flying within the country and who are members of Alaska, American, Delta, United, or US Airways’ frequent flier programs or the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Trusted Traveler Program or active duty U.S. military. Canadians traveling within the U.S. are also eligible, if they are members of NEXUS.
Screening is also modified for kids younger than 12 years old and adults older than 75.
