TSA PreCheck reaches 1 million milestone
The TSA hopes that its PreCheck programme will be in place in 35 US airports by the end of the 2012.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has announced that it has now screened 1 million passengers as part of its risk-based security programme, PreCheck.
The programme, which allows for the expedited processing of frequent flyers through airport security, was initially launched in October last year.
A number of US airports have signed up to the scheme, including Seattle-Tacoma Airport, which joined in April.
The TSA is aiming to expand PreCheck to as many as 35 US airports by the end of 2012.
