United Airlines starts vetting customers for TSA Precheck programme

Chicago-based carrier United Airlines (NYSE: UAL) said it is providing advance notice to customers who are selected for the US Transportation Security Administration´s prescreening programme TSA Precheck.

Eligible United customers will start to see the TSA Precheck indicator on mobile boarding passes, boarding passes printed at home or from the kiosks at some airports, allowing customers to effectively route themselves to available TSA Precheck lanes.

United said that the TSA Precheck logo will appear directly above an eligible passenger´s name on printed boarding passes. On mobile boarding passes, customers should look for the TSA Precheck logo at the top right corner above the barcode.

The TSA Precheck indicator will appear on boarding passes throughout a customer´s itinerary whether or not the airport has TSA Precheck, so customers are encouraged to check that the airport is a participating location on united.com/tsaprescreening or tsa.gov/tsaprecheck.

TSA manages and operates this programme and is responsible for determining customer eligibility on a per-flight basis. TSA continues to incorporate random and unpredictable security measures, so customers are not guaranteed expedited screening.

United currently participates in TSA Precheck at all eight of its domestic hubs and at a total of 29 airports.
