TSA Pre-Check Now Available at Denver International Airport
Airlines & Airports | February 17, 2013
The U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) said that active duty service members in the U.S. Armed Forces are now eligible to participate in TSA Pre-Check at Denver International Airport (DEN). TSA Pre-Check is available at the South Checkpoint.
TSA Pre-Check is a pre-screening program that allows eligible passengers to volunteer information about themselves to expedite their screening experience when traveling at participating airports. These passengers may be referred to the TSA Pre-Check lane where they will undergo expedited screening, which could include being able to leave on their shoes, light outerwear and belt, allowing them to keep their laptop in its case and their 3-1-1 compliant liquids/gels bag in carry-on.
Beginning in March 2012, TSA partnered with the U.S. Department of Defense to further streamline screening for active duty service members. In addition to Denver, service members may also participate in TSA Pre-Check when flying out of Charlotte Douglas International, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International, Honolulu International, Ronald Reagan Washington National, Seattle-Tacoma International and Washington Dulles International airports.
Active duty members of the military can present their Common Access Cards (CAC) to a TSA Officer in front of the TSA Pre-Check lane, where it will be scanned to determine if they qualify for expedited screening. TSA uses a CAC card reader and computer connected to a Department of Defense database to verify the service member’s active duty status before they are cleared to receive TSA Pre-Check screening benefits. Eligible service members do not need to be in uniform to be considered for TSA Pre-Check
In addition to service members, other eligible passengers include select U.S. citizens flying on participating airlines as well as those who are members of a Custom and Border Protection (CBP) Trusted Traveler program, 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-Check. Individuals interested in participating in a CBP Trusted Traveler program can apply by clicking on Global Entry.
