How does TSA Pre✓® work?
If you’re eligible and approved for the TSA Pre✓® program, you will be given a Known Traveler Number “KTN” to use when making flight reservations. KTNs can also be saved in an airline or travel agency profile. Participating airlines will print a TSA Pre✓® indicator on your boarding pass. When you arrive at the airport, look for signs for the TSA Pre✓® lanes and present your boarding pass and Government-issued ID to the Travel Document Checker.
Children ages 12 and under may join you in the TSA Pre✓® lane. For some frequently asked questions from the TSA about TSA PreCheck, please visit https://www.tsa.gov/precheck/faq.
