Air Canada Joins TSA Airport Security PreCheck Program

And the first international carrier in the U.S. program PreCheck is Air Canada.

What this means in practical terms is Canadians who are enrolled in the U.S. Customs and Border Protection NEXUS program – for expedited border crossings – also get the quicker airport security program called PreCheck. With PreCheck, passengers access special lanes at checkpoints where shoes stay on and those quart-size toiletry bags remain in the carry-on.

How to Join PreCheck

PreCheck is now available at 115 airports throughout the U.S. Those who’d like to take advantage of it can sign up for the program online (a brief in-person interview is required). PreCheck is also open to certain members of airline miles programs and participating carriers include Alaska, , Delta, Hawaiia, JetBlue, Southwest, United, US Airways and Virgin America.
