If you are a frequent flyer then you are
probably familiar with the TSA Pre ✓ process. For those who do fly often and you are sitting there wondering what it is, fear no more we are about to break it down for you!
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has initiated a great process especially designed for those who travel frequently. Spending hours and hours at the airport because of a million in one security checks is now only an option for the uninformed. All in a swift click with your index finger, you can have a 5 year membership for $85 to help with making security checks a lot easier. When you are a member of TSA Pre ✓ you avoid the normal procedure of removing your shoes, laptops, liquids, belts and light jackets.
According to TSA, members wait in lined for 5 minutes or less and over 3 million people have taken advantage of this new feature. What about the security of the passengers? If members are not getting checked, is the security of passengers being compromised? The answer of course is No; TSA conducts a background check that is very extensive. It includes a 10-minute, in person appointment, a background check and fingerprinting of the potential member.
