Breeze through security
TSA PreCheck lets eligible, low-risk travelers enjoy expedited security screening. The program is available at participating U.S. airport locations and for most international itineraries.
Ease through checkpoints without removing:
- Liquids and gels from your carry-on
- Laptop from your bag
- Light outerwear/jacket
Apply for the program directly through TSA if you are a:
- U.S. citizen, or
- Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR), and
- Haven’t been convicted of certain crimes
PreCheck access is also available if you are enrolled in a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Trusted Traveler program, including:
- Global Entry
Citi® / AAdvantage® Executive cardmembers receive an application fee credit for Global Entry or TSA PreCheck, up to $100 every 5 years. To receive reimbursement, you must charge the application fee to your Citi® / AAdvantage® Executive card.
Travel with PreCheck
If you’re registered with a CBP program, you’ll receive a 9-digit PASS ID (the number is the same for all CBP programs). If you apply directly through TSA, you’ll receive a Known Traveler Number (KTN). Before you travel, make sure your PASS ID or KTN is updated in your account or on your reservation.
In your AAdvantage account:
- Log in
- From “Your account”, choose “Information and password”
- In the “Secure traveler” section, add your PASS ID or KTN in the “Known Traveler number” field
If you're not an AAdvantage member, provide your PASS ID or KTN within each reservation when you book.
Or, join AAdvantage to have your information saved for every trip.
If you are a current CBP program member and you have a membership card, your PASS ID can be found on the back of your membership card.
If you are a current CBP program member and you do not have a membership card, you can obtain your membership number by logging into your Trusted Traveler Programs (TTP) account.
