With the addition of five new international airlines, 72 airlines are now part of the Transportation Security Administration’s PreCheck trusted-traveler programmer.
The new airlines are Austrian Airlines; Mexican low-cost carrier Interjet; PAL Express, a subsidiary of Philippine Airlines; Canadian ultra low-cost carrier Swoop; and Mexican low-cost carrier VivaAerobus.
Earlier this year, the TSA added nine new airlines to PreCheck including of Air India, Asiana, China Airlines, EVA Airways, Japan Airlines, TAP Air Portugal, and Volaris.
The PreCheck program first launched in October of 2011 and over 115 airports in the United States offer PreCheck.
Currently, members of Customs and Border Protection’s Trusted Traveler programs such as Global Entry, Sentri, and Nexus flying on a participating airline are eligible to use PreCheck’s expedited screening lanes as are those who enroll directly in the program. Military personnel on active duty are also eligible to use PreCheck.
