RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced today that it will expand its TSA expedited screening program to 60 new airports, including Reno-Tahoe International, by the end of the year.
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.
Passengers who are eligible for TSA Pre✓™ include U.S. citizens of frequent traveler programs invited by participating airlines. Additionally, 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 qualify to participate. Later this year TSA will launch an application program
, allowing more U.S. citizens to enroll in TSA Pre✓™.
