The US Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) PreCheck program for reducing airport security hassles for minimal risk passengers has so for achieved only limited success. TSA is holding the airlines responsible for this.
In 2012, the PreCheck program required the airlines to nominate passengers for the program. Since many airlines consider frequent-flier data to be a secret – some airlines have not participated in the program at all.
As a result, passengers qualifying for PreCheck for one airline cannot necessarily benefit from PreCheck when flying on another airline.
The PreCheck program has cleared over 3 million passengers and is operational at 27 US airports. TSA hopes to cover 50-75 percent of US domestic passengers through its PreCheck program.
