Via Travel Skills, TSA PreCheck has added 11 more airlines to the list of participants, including popular airlines like Avianca, Emirates, Virgin Atlantic, and Spirit Airlines. There are also smaller airlines, like Canadian charter airline Sunwing, which could be useful for folks who fly to Canada.
I’ll show you how to get TSA PreCheck, and remind you of the perks of the program.
11 More Airlines Participating in TSA PreCheck
If you are enrolled in TSA PreCheck, you’ll pass through a separate airport security line without taking off your shoes, belt, or light jacket. Plus, you don’t need to remove your laptop and liquids from your bags!
This is much easier and less stressful than the normal security lanes.
TSA has been aggressively marketing TSA PreCheck. And today, the program took a big step forward by adding 11 more airlines to its list of participants. There are now 30 airlines participating in TSA PreCheck (new airlines in bold):
- Aruba Airlines
- Boutique Airlines
- Key Lime Air
- Miami Air International
- Southern Airways Express
- Spirit Airlines
Sun Country Airlines
- Virgin Atlantic
- Xtra Airways
This is great news for folks who already have TSA PreCheck. And it makes the program even more tempting for folks who who aren’t already enrolled!

I recommend signing-up for Global Entry instead of TSA PreCheck. That’s because when you have Global Entry, you’ll almost ALWAYS be approved for TSA PreCheck. And Global Entry helps you avoid long lines at US Customs & Immigration when you’re coming home from international travel!
TSA PreCheck has added 11 more airlines to their list of participants. Most are smaller airlines, but the list also includes major airlines like Emirates, Spirit Airlines, Avianca, and Virgin Atlantic!
This is good news for folks with TSA PreCheck, because they’ll now get the benefits of expedited security screening when they book with 30 different airlines!
