The Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) Pre-Check program for expedited screening has been expanded this week at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport to include Delta and United flights in the A Concourse. This TSA program at Lambert began in 2012 with American and then US Air flights in the C concourse.
The TSA Pre-Check 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 flying with the participating airlines can enroll in TSA’s Pre-Check through their airline’s frequent flier programs. Travelers can also participate through enrollment in the CBP’s Global Entry, SENTRI or NEXUS Trusted Traveler programs.
To date, more than 12 million travelers have already experienced TSA Pre-Check at dozens of airports nationwide. The program will be expanded to even more airports this fall with additional ways to register online. For more information on enrolling in TSA Pre-Check, please visit the TSA website at www.tsa.gov.
Avoid parking fees the next time you pick up a passenger. Lambert provides free waiting zones for motorists near each terminal.
