New check-in program takes flight at TIA

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Flying the skies at Tampa International Airport just got a lot easier for a select few.

A pilot program is being used only at the pre-check lane, "Air-side E."  That's where Delta, Sun Country and Air Canada airlines are located.

Pre-check requires passengers to volunteer detailed personal information.  In exchange, the passengers can go through the expedited screening.

This new program allows passengers not registered with pre-check to use the same faster procedures.

TSA screeners have been trained to observe and interact with passengers standing in security lines. 

Passengers who have been deemed to be low-risk will be pulled and placed in the pre-check lane, which means shorter lines and a much faster security process.
