The addition of JetBlue will only exacerbate the PreCheck lines at some airports. Looking forward to the speed advantages offered to the people who aren't labeled known travelers.
According to a press release from JetBlue, customers who are members of one of the TSA’s certified trusted traveler programs can now add their known traveler number to a JetBlue reservation, and check in via JetBlue’s mobile app for expedited screening at 22 JetBlue locations in the United States.
JetBlue is the ninth U.S. airline to join the PreCheck program. Its rival Southwest announced it joined last week.
In a twist for the TSA program, flyers must use JetBlue’s app to receive expedited screening. Customers using paper tickets will not have access to PreCheck until early 2014.
TSA PreCheck is currently available at 100 U.S. airports, and JetBlue flyers can use it at the following airports:
- Austin, Texas
- Newark, NJ
- Oakland, Calif.
- Charlotte, N.C.
- Orlando, Fla.
- Ft Lauderdale, Fla
- Hartford, Conn.
- Salt Lake City
- Houston (Hobby)
- San Francisco
- Las Vegas
- San Juan, Puerto Rico
- Long Beach, Calif.
- Los Angeles
- Syracuse, N.Y.
- New York (LaGuardia)
- Washington, D.C. (Dulles)
- New York (JFK)
- White Plains, N.Y.
