TSA PreCheck Continues to Grow With the Addition of Swiss Air
TSA PreCheck is a great way to save time at the airport. At many US airports, folks eligible for TSA PreCheck get expedited security screening and don’t have to take off their shoes or remove laptops from their bag. It’s much less hassle!
And now you can use your TSA PreCheck benefits when you’re flying on Swiss Air!
With the addition of Swiss Air, there are now 54 airlines that participate in the program. Below is an updated list and I’ll remind you of the perks of having TSA PreCheck, and how to enroll in the program.
Swiss Air Joins TSA PreCheck
The trusted traveler program, TSA PreCheck, just added Swiss Air to its list of participants in the program.
TSA PreCheck helps folks get through airport security more quickly and conveniently. Because you’ll pass through a separate airport security line, without having to take off your shoes, belt, or light jacket. Plus, you don’t need to remove your laptop and liquids from your bags!
There are now 54 airlines participating in TSA PreCheck:
All Nippon Airways
Cathay Pacific Airways
Delta Air Lines
Key Lime Air
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines
Miami Air International
Southern Airways Express
Sun Country Airlines
Swiss International Air Lines

Thomas Cook Airlines (UK)
If you already have TSA PreCheck, this is good news! And it makes the program more enticing for folks who aren’t already enrolled.
Trusted traveler programs like TSA PreCheck or Global Entry are great because you’ll save time at the airport by avoiding long security lines.

A number of cards cover the price of enrollment (as a statement credit) in Global Entry or TSA PreCheck, including:
- Chase Sapphire Reserve®
- Citi® / AAdvantage Executive World Elite Mastercard®
- Capital One® Venture® Rewards Credit Card
- US Bank Altitude Reserve Visa Infinite® Card
- The Platinum Card® from American Express
- IHG® Rewards Club Premier Credit Card
- The Business Platinum® Card from American Express OPEN
If you use one of these cards for your TSA PreCheck or Global Entry application, you will be automatically reimbursed!
That said, I recommend signing up for Global Entry instead of TSA PreCheck, 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!
