Good News for Those Who Have PreCheck

If you’re a member of the TSA PreCheck program, it’s starting to work much better.

Until recently, if you were taking an international flight from the U.S. on a foreign carrier, PreCheck didn’t exist and you got stuck in very long lines.

Thankfully, that is changing. More than 65 foreign airlines are now participating in PreCheck.

These airlines range from Aeromexico to WestJet, from Turkish Airlines and British Airways, to Finnair and Singapore. Carriers had to all meet the TSA requirements to be in sync with the U.S. governments pre-screening security system.

So before you take your next international flight, check to make sure that your foreign carrier is part of the program. It will help you get through those security lines faster.
