Singapore Airlines to offer the TSA Precheck programme to customers

By  |  0 Comments

Singapore Airlines has partnered with the United States Transportation Security Administration (TSA) on their TSA Precheck Programme

The TSA Precheck (Pre✓®) programme issues travellers to the US with a “Known Traveller Number” (KTN) that can be provided to the airline during the ticket booking process or at check-in. Once verified by the system, a TSA Pre✓® logo will be printed on their boarding pass. This confirms that the traveller’s KTN has been captured in their booking record.

The programme is open to US citizens and lawful permanent residents. Non-US citizens can enjoy similar benefits under various Customs Border Protection (CBP) trusted traveller programmes, such as Global Entry, NEXUS and SENTRI. Singaporeans are eligible to apply for the Global Entry Programme.

Singapore Airlines customers, after successful application through the programme, can enjoy expedited security screening procedures at US airports. These customers can use a separate lane for security screening during departure, where the traveller does not have to remove jackets, belts, laptops, liquids and shoes. this will help reduce waiting time spent at checkpoints. Customers can provide their KTN across SIA’s various check-in or booking channels, including its call agents, online reservations system, and website check-in via singaporeair.com or the SingaporeAir mobile app. They can also provide the KTN during check-in at the airport counter.

Children aged 12 and under, travelling with a passenger with a valid KTN, can also enjoy the benefits of TSA Pre✓®.
