TSA PreCheck

Reduced access for non-enrolled travelers

TSA is significantly reducing PreCheck access for non-enrolled travelers. To continue using expedited screening, we recommend enrolling in a DHS Trusted Traveler program.

Breeze through security

TSA PreCheck lets eligible, low-risk travelers enjoy expedited security screening. The program is available at participating U.S. airport locations and for most international itineraries.

Ease through checkpoints without removing:

  • Shoes
  • Liquids and gels from your carry-on
  • Laptop from your bag
  • Light outerwear/jacket
  • Belts

Eligibility

Apply for the program directly through TSA if you are a:

  • U.S. citizen, or
  • Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR), and
  • Haven’t been convicted of certain crimes

PreCheck access is also available if you are enrolled in a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Trusted Traveler program, including:

  • Global Entry
  • SENTRI
  • NEXUS

Citi® / AAdvantage® Executive cardmembers receive an application fee credit for Global Entry or TSA PreCheck, up to $100 every 5 years. To receive reimbursement, you must charge the application fee to your Citi® / AAdvantage® Executive card.

Travel with PreCheck

If you’re registered with a CBP program, you’ll receive a 9-digit PASS ID (the number is the same for all CBP programs). If you apply directly through TSA, you’ll receive a Known Traveler Number (KTN). Before you travel, make sure your PASS ID or KTN is updated in your account or on your reservation.

In your AAdvantage account:

  • Log in
  • From “My account”, choose “Information and password”
  • In the “Secure traveler” section, add your PASS ID or KTN in the “Known Traveler number” field

Update your profile

If you're not an AAdvantage member, provide your PASS ID or KTN within each reservation when you book.

Or, join AAdvantage to have your information saved for every trip.
