The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) recently announced that it was expanding TSA PreCheck® with Telos Corporation at ten airports in the U.S.

Telos began enrolling its first applicants during trial periods in Annapolis, Md., Chantilly, Va., Ashburn, Va., and Las Vegas. 

Since TSA first launched the TSA PreCheck application program for low-risk travelers in December 2013, active membership in the program has grown to more than 15 million passengers.

About 99% of TSA PreCheck® passengers wait less than 10 minutes at 200 airports.

“TSA PreCheck is a trusted traveler program that improves overall aviation security and provides time and convenience benefits to its members,” said TSA Administrator David Pekoske in a press release on August 15, 2023.

“This expansion of enrollment providers will increase the network of locations where applicants may go to complete their TSA PreCheck membership.”

Moving forward, TSA PreCheck members may renew their memberships online with Telos or IDEMIA (TSA PreCheck’s original enrollment provider), regardless of who they enrolled with initially.

As of August 20, 2023, TSA reported airport screening activity had regained volumes last seen in 2019.
