TSA Pre✓™ is now available for eligible passengers flying on participating airlines out of Cleveland Hopkins International (CLE) airport. The first TSA Pre✓™ area is now open on lane 7 on the far left of Security Checkpoint C.
Select passengers traveling on American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and US Airways from CLE are eligible to participate in expedited screening. To date, more than 6.5 million passengers have experienced TSA Pre✓™ which allows passengers 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.
Eligible passengers include U.S. citizens who have opted-in through Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and US Airways as well as those who are members of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Trusted Traveler programs, including Global Entry, SENTRI and NEXUS. Canadian citizens traveling domestically in the United States who are members of NEXUS are also qualified to participate in TSA Pre✓™. Individuals interested in joining a CBP Trusted Traveler program can learn more by visiting www.cbp.gov
If TSA determines a passenger is eligible for TSA Pre✓™, information is embedded in the barcode of the passenger’s boarding pass. TSA scans the boarding pass at the designated TSA Pre✓™ lane where the passenger may experience the expedited screening process. Passengers 12 and younger are also allowed through TSA Pre✓™ lanes with eligible passengers.
TSA will always incorporate random and unpredictable security measures throughout the airport and no individual is guaranteed expedited screening. TSA’s multi-layered approach to security also includes behavior detection officers, explosives-detection systems, canine teams, and federal air marshals, among other measures, both seen and unseen.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) was created in the wake of September 11, 2001, to strengthen the security of the nation’s transportation systems and ensure the freedom of movement for people and commerce. Today, TSA secures the nation’s airports and screens all commercial airline passengers and baggage. TSA uses a risk-based strategy and works closely with transportation, law enforcement and intelligence communities to set the standard for excellence in transportation security. TSA’s workforce is comprised of approximately 50,000 frontline officers who screen approximately 1.8 million travelers each day at more than 450 airports nationwide.
