The known-traveler initiative, known as PreCheck, will be tested at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International, Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County, Dallas/Fort Worth International and Miami International airports.
Domestic flight passengers on Delta and American airlines will have the option to provide personal information to TSA.
According to TSA Administrator John Pistole, PreCheck is part of the agency’s larger effort to move away from a “one-size-fits-all” approach to airport security.
“By learning more about travelers through information they voluntarily provide, and combining that information with our other layers of security, we can focus more resources on higher-risk and unknown passengers,” Pistole said in a statement. This new screening system holds great potential to strengthen security while significantly enhancing the travel experience whenever possible for passengers.”
