TSA PreCheck Includes Air Canada, GBTA Approves

air canadaThe Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) applauded the announcement by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) expanding its expedited screening program, TSA PreCheck, to include eligible customers of Air Canada, making it the first international carrier to participate. Travelers flying out of the U.S. on Air Canada airlines will now have the opportunity to receive TSA PreCheck.

“Today’s announcement marks another milestone for TSA PreCheck as TSA adds Air Canada, its first international carrier, to the TSA PreCheck program,” said Nancy Tudorache, director of operations for GBTA Canada. “Business travel drives business growth and this is another improvement to the facilitation of international business travel. TSA is to be commended for its consistent efforts to reduce unnecessary travel hassles while ensuring aviation security.”

TSA PreCheck is an expedited screening program that allows pre-approved airline travelers to leave on their shoes, light outerwear and belt, keep their laptop in its case and their 3-1-1 compliant liquids/gels bag in a carry-on in select screening lanes at U.S. domestic airports. TSA PreCheck operations are available at more than 115 airports nationwide, with more than 40 of those locations offering expedited screening to Air Canada customers, GBTA notes.

GBTA says it has long supported TSA PreCheck, Global Entry, and other risk-based, intelligence-driven trusted traveler programs that benefit busy business travelers. While ensuring security on every level, these programs make travel more efficient and reduce travel time. As the global marketplace becomes even more integrated, business travel will significantly increase if government authorities continue to take steps to ease travel burdens while ensuring security.
