Spirit Airlines enters TSAPrecheck program

Spirit Airlines has announced its participation in the US Transportation Security Administration´s expedited security screening program, TSAPrecheck, effective immediately.

Eligible Spirit customers can now speed up the security screening process at participating US airports. TSAPrecheck is an expedited screening program that enables trusted travelers to enjoy an efficient screening experience at more than 180 US airports. TSAPrecheck travelers are not required to remove shoes, 3-1-1 compliant liquids, laptops, light outerwear or belts.

Enrollment in TSAPrecheck costs USD 85, an average cost of USD 17 per year. Interested participants must submit an application to be approved by the TSA.

Spirit customers without TSAPrecheck awaiting approval can select Shortcut Security, a fast alternative to skip the security checkpoint line at select airports. Customers can add Shortcut Security to their reservation during the online booking process or purchase at participating airports.

Spirit Airlines is committed to offering the lowest total price to the places we fly, on average nearly 40% less than other airlines. Customers pay only for the options they choose, such as bags, seat assignments, and refreshments. The airline operates more than 400 daily flights to more than 59 destinations in the US, Latin America, and the Caribbean.
