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:
- Liquids and gels from your carry-on
- Laptop from your bag
- Light outerwear/jacket
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
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 “Your account”, choose “Information and password”
- In the “Secure traveler” section, add your PASS ID or KTN in the “Known Traveler number” field
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.
If you are a current CBP program member and you have a membership card, your PASS ID can be found on the back of your membership card.
If you are a current CBP program member and you do not have a membership card, you can obtain your membership number by logging into your Trusted Traveler Programs (TTP) account.
