Cathay Pacific now participates in US TSA Pre✓ 1 Nov

TSA Pre✓® expands to include 5 additional domestic and international airlines

Expedited screening now available through 42 air carriers

WASHINGTON — The Transportation Security Administration today announced the expansion of its TSA Pre✓® expedited screening program to five additional domestic and international carriers. Now in operation, the five new partnering airlines are All Nippon Airways, Cathay Pacific Airways, Contour Aviation, Finnair and Korean Air. Today’s announcement brings the number of airlines participating in TSA Pre✓® to 42 domestic and international carriers.

TSA Pre✓® is an expedited screening program that enables low-risk travelers to enjoy a smart and efficient screening experience at 200 U.S. airports. For TSA Pre✓® travelers, there is no need to remove shoes, laptops, 3-1-1 liquids, belts or light jackets.

TSA Pre✓® is available when departing from a U.S. airport to a foreign country, and for domestic, connecting flights after returning to the U.S. Travelers who are U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals and lawful permanent residents of the U.S. can apply for TSA Pre✓® for a cost of $85 for five years, or $17 per year through the TSA Pre✓® application program. Once approved, travelers will receive a “Known Traveler Number” and will have the opportunity to utilize TSA Pre✓® lanes at select security checkpoints when traveling on any of the 42 participating airlines.

Other passengers who are eligible for TSA Pre✓® include: U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Trusted Traveler programs, Global Entry, NEXUS, and SENTRI. TSA Pre✓® is also available for U.S. Armed Forces service members, including those serving in the U.S. Coast Guard, Reserves and National Guard. To find the program that best suits your travel needs, use the Department of Homeland Security trusted traveler comparison tool.

As always, TSA continues to incorporate unpredictable security measures, both seen and unseen, throughout the airport. All travelers will be screened, and no individual will be guaranteed expedited screening.

But it doesn't look like website has been updated to accept KTN during booking or manage booking.

Please report back if KTN is captured during online and/or counter check-in if you have an ex-US flight coming up.

As a point of reference, when Air Canada joined, you had to check-in at airport to obtain PreCheck as they didn't roll out changes to the website upon PreCheck participation.

I can't wait for this with CX in T8 at JFK now. My next ex-JFK isn't for another month though, maybe they will update website by then or allow to enter at check-in online.

I don't know how long it will take, but I remember NH had precheck (supposedly) but nobody at the airport knew anything about it.

No. They've had it for a while already. I was commenting on when they just announced they were starting it (and how nobody at the airport from the airline knew anything about it).

I don't think Bradley terminal at LAX has a TSA Pre line at all. Maybe it will be worth going through AA terminal 4 and taking the bridge. (assuming no luggage check in at Bradley)

I'll be flying CX ex-SFO on Saturday. I'll have my GE card and will report back if the agent is able to add my KTN.

Correct. Been through a few times with other airlines.

No TSA Pre at TBIT

You can go through the TSA lines at T4 and take the Airside Connector walkway to TBIT.

EDIT to Add: Hmmm, now that the number of international airlines with TSA Pre has increased, I wonder if it is worth it for LAX TBIT to set up a TSA lane.

ORD doesn't have it too. But maybe we can get Pre Check lite?

I'm tempted to fly from JFK just for this, especially when I am more flexible. It may also suggest room for further cooperation for ex-JFK pax to use AA F check in?

Considering CX F gets Flagship a la carte Dining and PreCheck....really couldn't care less about Flagship Check-in.
