TSA PreCheck is an amazing program that can save you a lot of time at the airport! Here is the list of 30 airlines that participate in TSA PreCheck.

Last Thursday, the TSA announced that they had added 11 new airlines to their list of participating airlines for TSA PreCheck. This brought the total new number up to 30, which is great news for travelers especially those that travel internationally as many new international airlines are now included! Here is the list of the airlines that participate in TSA PreCheck.

What is TSA PreCheck?

In case you have only noticed the special TSA PreCheck signs at airports and not looked into it, TSA PreCheck is a kind of preclearance program for travelers. For $85, you can get 5 years of smoother security screening at TSA checkpoints around the USA. This can be a big help at busier times or at larger, international airports (though the TSA lines can get very long as well, but at least you do not have to take things out of your bag!).

With TSA PreCheck, you will no longer have to remove your shoes, laptops, liquids, belts and light jackets!

Make your security screening easier!

TSA PreCheck can be obtained by filling out the application and then appearing for an in-person interview at an enrollment center. This interview includes some questions, fingerprints, and a background check. You can check to see your closest one of the almost 400 enrollment centers here.

If you are a US Armed Forces member, you are able to participate in the program for free!

TSA PreCheck can also be obtained by being part of a trusted traveler program, like Global Entry. For an extra $15 for the 5 years, Global Entry is a much better deal, especially since it includes TSA PreCheck. Check out this page for more information about Global Entry and the application process.

You also may be able to get your TSA PreCheck $85 fee refunded by having certain credit cards like these:

With each of those cards, you can apply for and pay for Global Entry and be reimbursed the $100 fee – and you will have TSA PreCheck included for free!

The Airlines That Participate in TSA PreCheck

So, here is the list of 30 airlines that participate in TSA PreCheck:

  • Aeromexico
  • Air Canada
  • Alaska Airlines
  • Allegiant Air
  • American Airlines
  • Aruba Airlines
  • Avianca
  • Boutique Airlines
  • Cape Air
  • Delta Air Lines
  • Emirates
  • Etihad Airways
  • Frontier Airlines
  • Hawaiian Airlines
  • JetBlue Airways
  • Key Lime Air
  • Lufthansa
  • Miami Air International
  • OneJet
  • Seaborne Airlines
  • Southern Airways Express
  • Southwest Airlines
  • Spirit Airlines
  • Sun Country Airlines
  • Sunwing Airlines
  • United Airlines
  • Virgin America
  • Virgin Atlantic
  • WestJet
  • Xtra Airways

It is great to see airlines like Emirates, Etihad, Lufthansa, and Virgin Atlantic on this list the many people that do fly them to their international destinations. However, I am still missing Turkish Airlines on this list! Last year, I flew out of JFK with them and completely forgot how long the regular TSA lines can be – even though I was in the elite line!

If you are flying domestically more than a couple of times per year or flying internationally, definitely consider getting Global Entry (and with it, TSA PreCheck). You will be very grateful for it! Having TSA PreCheck has literally saved me hours in airports because I have been able to book flights that were tighter than I would have considered had I had to wait in the normal line. It gave me more time in the cities I was in and still got me to my final destination at a convenient time!
