Iberia joins the TSA PreCheck programme


Travellers enrolled in the TSA PreCheck programme do not have to remove their shoes, belt or jacket, or take out liquids and electronic devices from carry-on baggage when going through the security control

Iberia joined the U.S. Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) PreCheck programme, which expedites passage through the airport, minimising waiting time and facilitating the journey through security controls in the United States.

TSA PreCheck passengers should look for the TSA PreCheck indicator on their boarding pass before they arrive at the airport to make their passage faster and more agile, as passengers do not have to remove their shoes, belts or jackets, or remove liquids and electronic devices from hand luggage when passing through the security checkpoint.

According to TSA data, 99% of passengers enrolled in the TSA PreCheck programme wait, on average, less than ten minutes in security lines.
