Skift Take

The fact that pre-check isn't just reserved for passengers who pay for premium airline tickets is a plus, but the TSA shouldn't lose sight of improving the experience for all flyers and cease its dreaded pat-down process.

More fliers will soon find relief from the hassles at airport security lines.

The Transportation Security Administration’s precheck program that lets passengers keep their shoes and belts on through security has expanded to 26 airports in its first year and will continue to grow.

Since it was launched in October 2011, 2.7 million passengers have been screened though a dedicated precheck security lane, said TSA spokesman David Castelveter.
