The TSA PreCheck program that promises easier security checks and faster lines for 'trusted travelers' just got four more airline partners, bringing the total to 87 that can put the 'TSA PreCheck' indicator on passengers' tickets.
The four are split between two in Europe and two in North America. In Europe, Italy's ITA Airways has joined in, along with Air Europa, Spain's #3 airline. Flair Airlines, which bills itself as Canada's only independent ultra-low-cost carrier is also on the list, along with Volaris El Salvador, a subsidiary of Mexico's Volaris.
Fee to join the program, which currently operates at over 200 U.S. airports and one in the Bahamas, is $85 for five years and requires an interview. It is also included as part of Global Entry. There are 27.4 million members, and TSA says that on average their security wait time is less than five minutes.
