Orbitz.com announced today that it is the first online travel site to offer its top customers complimentary registration in the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) expedited airport screening system (TSA PreCheck), as it is inviting its top tier Orbitz Rewards members to enroll.
TSA PreCheck, an expedited screening program that began in October 2011, enables low-risk travelers to enjoy a smart and efficient screening experience at 140 U.S. airports when flying on 11 participating carriers. TSA PreCheck travelers may leave on their shoes, light outerwear and belt, keep their laptop in its case and their 3-1-1 compliant liquids/gels bag in a carry-on in select screening lanes. This year, the TSA PreCheck application program surpassed more than 1 million travelers enrolled. TSA has more than 330 application centers nationwide, including locations at 31 airports.
“While the initial focus for TSA PreCheck enrollment has been frequent business travelers, the reasonable cost and tremendous convenience of the program makes it something that even the 2-3 times per year airline passenger should enjoy,” said Sarah Butterfass, vice president of loyalty for Orbitz.com. “We have been working with TSA to encourage more travelers to enroll in TSA PreCheck, and along with some marketing initiatives to promote the program, we are inviting our top tier Platinum Orbitz Rewards members to take advantage of this exclusive benefit being offered to them at no cost.”
