TSA PreCheck adding airports, ease through security checkpoint

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

What wouldn't you give to never have to stand in a snail's-paced, stressful airport security line? Well, for a small amount of money (or, if you qualify, no money at all) the Transportation Security Administration's PreCheck program can take care of this little problem for you.

What is this program? How do you get it? How much does it cost? All these questions and more you didn't know to ask will be answered right now.

What is it?
PreCheck is a swiftly-expanding program that expedites what the TSA calls "trusted travelers" through security lines. Where you once dreaded showing up at the checkpoint, now you'll be able to move through special, TSA-approved, dedicated-to-you PreCheck lanes.

Not only that, you'll also be able to keep your shoes on, your toiletries and laptop in your bag and your jacket and belt on. Essentially, you will no longer be treated like a criminal on your way to catching the 5:45 to Cincinnati.

Got kids? Anyone in the program can bring children 12 and under into the line with them. Boom – your family vacation just got that much less stressful.
