Pittsburgh International Will Be One Of 30 U.S. Airports To Start New TSA Pre-Check Security Program During 2012

Pittsburgh International Airport will be one of 30 U.S. airports to implement the new Transportation Security Administration Pre-Check program during 2012, which will allow certain pre-screened travelers to pass more quickly through security checkpoints, the agency has announced.

Implementing a key component of what the TSA calls its "intelligence-driven, risk-based approach to security," the Pre-Check program "enhances aviation security by placing more focus on pre-screening individuals who volunteer to participate in order to expedite the travel experience."

TSA is partnering with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) as well as U.S. air carriers as part of this pre-flight screening initiative. Certain frequent flyers from Delta Air Lines, American Airlines and certain members of CBP's Trusted Traveler programs, including Global Entry, SENTRI, and NEXUS who are U.S. citizens are eligible to participate.

Passengers who are flying on Delta out of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International, Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County, Las Vegas’ McCarran International and Minneapolis-St. Paul International airports or on American out of Dallas/Fort Worth International, Las Vegas’ McCarran International, Miami International Los Angeles International and Minneapolis-St. Paul airports are eligible to participate, which could qualify them for expedited screening at select checkpoints.

Delta will begin TSA Pre-Check operations at Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) on February 14 and American will begin at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) on February 28. In March, TSA Pre-Check will expand to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) for qualified participants flying on Delta and to Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport (ORD) for participants flying on American.

In 2012, TSA plans to expand TSA Pre-Check for eligible passengers flying on participating airlines at the following airport locations:
Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI)
Boston Logan International Airport (BOS)
Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT)
Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG)
