More travelers getting prescreening at OIA

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Passengers traveling through Orlando International Airport are getting more options for expediting their security screening.

Airport officials announced this week that the airport’s largest carrier, Southwest Airlines, will participate in the Pre-Check program offered by the Transportation Security Administration.

Passengers eligible for the program include U.S. citizens in the frequent traveler programs for United, American, Delta, Alaska, and now Southwest, airlines. Also eligible are U.S. citizens in the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Trusted Traveler program.

Pre-approved travelers can leave on their shoes, light outerwear and belts when going through security. They also don’t have to take out their lap tops from their carry-on bags.

Orlando International Airport had more than 35 million passengers passing through last year.
