TAP Air Portugal today announced the expansion of TSA Pre✓™ to include eligible TAP customers.
-- TAP Passengers Can Now Use TSA Pre✓™ At All
TSA Pre✓™ is an expedited screening program that allows pre-approved airline travelers to leave on their shoes, light outerwear and belt, keep their laptop in its case and their 3-1-1 compliant liquids/gels bag in a carry-on in select screening lanes. TSA Pre✓™ operations are available at TAP’s airport operations at New York’s JFK, Newark Liberty, Boston Logan, and Miami International, as well as – from June – Chicago O’Hare, San Francisco International and Washington-Dulles airports.
“TAP is excited to be able to offer expedited airport security screening to our customers now in conjunction with the Transportation Security Administration and its TSA Pre✓™ program, said Antonoaldo Neves, TAP’s Chief Executive Officer.”
Passengers who are eligible for TSA Pre✓™ include U.S. citizens who are members of a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Trusted Traveler program and Canadian citizens who are members of CBP’s NEXUS program. 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. Later this year TSA will launch an application program, allowing more U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents to enroll in TSA Pre✓™.
