Philadelphia adopts TSA PreCheck


PreCheck is part of the TSA’s wider effort to implement a risk-based security concept.

PreCheck is part of the TSA’s wider effort to implement a risk-based security concept.

Philadelphia International Airport has become the latest US airport to offer the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) PreCheck programme, allowing domestic travellers to experience an expedited screening process.

Passengers who are select US Airways frequent travellers or members of US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Trusted Traveller programmes can now use dedicated PreCheck lines.

PreCheck is part of the TSA’s wider effort to implement risk-based security concepts that enhance security by focusing efforts on travellers considered high-risk and who the agency knows less about.

“This screening concept enhances security by enabling TSA to make risk assessments on passengers who volunteer information about themselves prior to flying,” said Robert Ellis, TSA Federal Security Director for Philadelphia International Airport.

“As a more intelligence-driven, risk-based approach to passenger screening, TSA PreCheck helps us move away from the one-size-fits-all model and allows us to optimise our resources at the checkpoint while improving the passenger experience.”
