LATAM Airlines incorporates TSA PreCheck to improve the travel experience
Passengers with program membership can benefit from an expedited security review process at more than 200 airports in the United States
The LATAM group and the United States Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced the incorporation of the airline to the TSA PreCheck program, offering a faster and more expeditious process at the time of the security inspection in more than 200 airports in the United States.
TSA PreCheck is a pre-screening process that allows travelers an agile and efficient experience in which they do not need to remove their shoes, belts or light jackets, remove their laptops or liquids when arriving at the security control areas in selected airports.
TSA PreCheck is available to registered passengers when departing from a US airport or when connecting on domestic flights when leaving or entering the United States. US citizens or US lawful permanent residents can apply for TSA PreCheck at a cost of US $ 85 and valid for five years.
Other passengers who are eligible for the TSA PreCheck program include members of the three US Customs and Border Protection Trusted Traveler programs: Global Entry, NEXUS and SENTRI. TSA PreCheck is also available to service members of the US Armed Forces, including those serving in the US Coast Guard, Reserves, and National Guard.
Starting today, LATAM customers who are members of TSA PreCheck, Global Entry, NEXTUS or SENTRI can provide their "known traveler number" when making their reservation. This will generate an identification on the boarding pass that will allow you to navigate through exclusive lines for a more comfortable experience and with less waiting times at authorized airports.
