For those that asked for the full text of the email I received yesterday, allowing me to use TSAPre, here it is:
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is partnering with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) for the TSA Pre✓™ program. TSA Pre✓™ allows eligible passengers to qualify for expedited screening at participating U.S. airports with participating airlines. We are pleased to announce that TSA has extended TSA Pre✓™ eligibility to additional Global Entry program members and you are receiving this email because you have been identified as a Global Entry member who is eligible for TSA Pre✓™.
If TSA determines a passenger is eligible for expedited screening through TSA Pre✓™, the TSA Pre✓™ logo will print on the boarding pass and passengers may be referred to the TSA Pre✓™ lane where they will undergo expedited screening. This may include no longer removing shoes, light outerwear and belts and allowing laptops to remain in their cases and 3-1-1 compliant liquids/gels bags in their carry-ons.
Global Entry members interested in participating in TSA Pre✓™ must enter their PASS ID into the “Known Traveler” field when booking a flight reservation or saving their PASS ID to their airline’s frequent flyer profile under the field marked “Known Traveler Number” (KTN). The airlines refer to the PASS ID as the “Known Traveler Number”. Members can find their PASS ID online through their Global Online Enrollment System (GOES) account. If passengers are experiencing difficulties applying their PASS ID, more information can be found at tsa.gov, or at the participating airlines website.
When traveling on one of the TSA Pre✓™ participating airlines, CBP Trusted Traveler members should remember to provide the airline with their full name, date of birth and PASS ID/KTN exactly as it appears in their GOES account to ensure they are properly considered for TSA Pre✓™.
It is important to note that a passenger will only receive TSA Pre✓™ access when traveling on a participating airline. To date, the following airlines are participating in TSA Pre✓™:
- Alaska Airlines
- American Airlines
- Delta Air Lines
- Hawaiian Airlines
- JetBlue Airways
- Southwest Airlines
- United Airlines
- US Airways
- Virgin America
TSA Pre✓™ is available at over 100 airports across the United States.
