Philippine Airlines (PAL) passengers traveling from the United States may avail of a faster security screening procedure, after PAL became part of the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) PreCheck program.
The TSA PreCheck program aims to help travelers undergo quick and convenient security screening as they fly out of airports from and within the US.
Passengers enrolled in the TSA PreCheck program who are on PAL flights from Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York JFK, Honolulu, and Guam starting last February 2, no longer have to remove their shoes, belts, and jackets. Passengers’ gadgets and liquids may remain in their carry-on bags at the TSA PreCheck checkpoints.
At US airport checkpoints, passengers should look for the TSA PreCheck entrance. Should there be no TSA PreCheck lane in operation, passengers should follow TSA officer instructions to ensure the most convenient screening possible, said.
Passengers enrolled in the expedited security screening program should provide their known traveler number (KTN) when booking flights on PAL. The name, date of birth, and gender submitted for the airline reservation should match their TSA PreCheck application.
