SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- United Airlines announced the launch of the Transportation Security Administration's (TSA) PreCheck program at San Francisco International Airport (SFO) Terminal 3. TSA PreCheck also opened for United customers this week at Baltimore-Washington International (BWI) and San Juan - Luis Munoz Marin International in Puerto Rico (SJU). TSA PreCheck is a new, risk-based pre-screening initiative that allows customers to volunteer information about themselves that may make them eligible to expedite their screening experience. Eligible United customers are allowed to leave on their shoes, light outerwear and belts and to keep their laptops and 3-1-1 compliant liquids and gels in their carry-ons when traveling through the Terminal 3 Premium Checkpoint at SFO, the Main Terminal Checkpoint D at BWI, and the Main Terminal Checkpoint 4 at SJU.
"We are excited that the TSA is expanding the PreCheck process to our San Francisco hub," said Alex Marren, United's senior vice president of network operations and United Express. "We now have PreCheck at seven of our United hubs and 15 other airports, and customers are welcoming the new process."
The TSA manages and operates this program and is working with United and with U.S. Customs and Border Protection to identify possible participants. Eligible United MileagePlus members are being invited to participate in the initial phase. Non-members may qualify by becoming eligible members of U.S. Customs and Border Protection's Trusted Traveler programs. For customers who choose to participate, the TSA will determine eligibility for expedited screening prior to each flight and will embed this information in the barcode of eligible customers' boarding passes. TSA agents will scan the boarding pass and direct eligible customers to the assigned pre-screening lane. The TSA will always incorporate random and unpredictable security measures, so no customers are guaranteed expedited screening.
