TSA Pre-Check Begins At Orlando International Airport

Service Available To Some Passengers On Domestic Flights

TSA has added Orlando International Airport (KMCO) to its list of airports where some passengers can take advantage of its Pre-Check program. TSA Pre-Check is a passenger pre-screening initiative. At KMCO, select Delta frequent flyers as well as members of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Trusted Traveler programs are now eligible to participate and may receive expedited screening benefits when traveling domestically.

TSA Pre-Check is part of the agency’s larger effort to implement risk-based security concepts that enhance security by focusing efforts on travelers considered high-risk and about whom the agency knows less. To date, more than 880,000 passengers have experienced TSA Pre-Check. TSA Pre-Check is now available in 14 airports for Alaska Airlines’, American Airlines’ and Delta Air Lines’ frequent flyers.

“This screening concept enhances security by enabling TSA to focus its efforts on passengers the agency knows less about while providing expedited screening for travelers who volunteer information about themselves prior to flying,” said Director of Field Operations Heather Callahan.

Eligible passengers include U.S. citizens flying on participating airlines as well as those who are members of CBP Trusted Traveler programs, including Global Entry, SENTRI and NEXUS.

If TSA determines a passenger is eligible for expedited screening through the TSA Pre-Check pre-screening process, information is imbedded in the barcode of the passenger’s boarding pass. TSA reads the barcode at the designated checkpoint and the passenger may referred to the TSA Pre-Check lane where they will undergo expedited screening, which could include being able to leave their shoes, light outerwear and belt on, allowing them to keep their laptop in its case and their 3-1-1 compliant liquids/gels bag in a carry-on.
 
As part of the effort to implement additional risk-based security procedures, TSA is in the process of testing several other screening concepts, including a program designed to positively identify airline pilots, the use of expanded behavior detection techniques, modified screening procedures for travelers 75 and older, and providing TSA Pre-Check screening benefits to U.S. Military active duty members traveling through Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.

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.
