Expedited screenings now available in Birmingham

Posted: Updated:

Beginning today the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport offers expedited screening to move passengers through the airport checkpoint more rapidly.

TSA Pre✓™ is a pre-screening initiative that makes risk-based assessments on passengers prior to their arrival at the airport checkpoint.  It allows select frequent flyers of participating airlines who have opted in to TSA Pre✓™ and members of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) trusted Traveler programs who are flying on participating airlines to receive expedited screening benefits.  Eligible participants use dedicated screening lanes for screening benefits which include leaving on shoes, light outerwear and belts, as well as leaving laptops and 3-1-1 compliant liquids in carry-on bags.   A recent expansion of the TSA Pre✓™ program allows other randomly selected passengers every day to also enjoy the benefits of this expedited screening.

To learn more about the program or how to participate please visit the Transportation Security Administrations website at www.tsa.gov/tsa-precheck.
