TSA allows teens to use PreCheck fast-track screening

Friday, 26 May, 2023 0

The Transportation Security Administration is making it easier for PreCheck fliers on family trips.

Now, teens aged up to 17 years are now allowed to join their parents or guardian in the PreCheck expedited security lane at airports.

They must be on the same flight reservation.

“TSA is facilitating travel with ease for low risk travelers,” an agency spokesperson said.

It enables officers to ‘focus greater attention to high risk passengers in standard lanes,.’

Previously it was only available for younger children under 12 years.

PreCheck are screened and verified when they enroll and are considered low-risk travelers.

This means they do not have to remove shoes, belts, liquids, jackets or laptops from bags.

The relaxed policy comes just ahead of the holiday which ushers in the start of the summer travel season.

Airports are expected to be crowded this Memorial Day weekend..

PreCheck costs $78 and lasts for five years.

The TSA says PreCheck passengers pass through screening in less than five minutes on average.

The service is available at more than 200 US airports.
