Sea-Tac tries expedited security PreCheck program

Next time you’re at an airport how would you like to speed through the security line without taking off your shoes and belt or removing laptops and liquids from carry-on bags?

The Transportation Security Administration is starting an expedited screening program today for some passengers on Alaska Airlines at Sea-Tac Airport, the Associated Press reports.

It’s called PreCheck.  

The only Sea-Tac travelers eligible for now are members of Alaska’s frequent-flier program invited by the airline and pre-approved by TSA. Also members of expedited border crossing programs run by the Customs and Border Protection, such as Nexus.
