MIRAMAR, Fla., Jan. 26, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Do you love skipping the line? Spirit Airlines is excited to announce its participation in the U.S. Transportation Security Administration's TSAPrecheck® program. Effective today, eligible Spirit customers can now speed up the security screening process at participating U.S. airports. This partnership, coupled with Spirit's ultra-low fares, will allow customers to save lots of money and even more time, all to spend making memories on vacation.
TSAPrecheck is an expedited screening program that enables trusted travelers to enjoy a smart and efficient screening experience at more than 180 U.S. airports. TSAPrecheck travelers are not required to remove shoes, 3-1-1 compliant liquids, laptops, light outerwear or belts. Enrollment in TSAPrecheck costs $85, an average cost of $17 per year. Interested participants must submit an application to be approved at www.tsa.gov/precheck. Eligible Spirit customers can now add a Known Traveler Number (KTN) during the booking process or attach it to an existing reservation under the Manage Travel section of www.spirit.com.
Don't have TSAPrecheck or still waiting to be approved? Spirit has customers covered with Shortcut Security™, a fast alternative to skip the security checkpoint line at select airports. Customers can add Shortcut Security to their reservation during the online booking process or purchase at participating airports.
"We are thrilled to give our customers options for a more efficient and expedited security screening experience," said John Bendoraitis, Chief Operating Officer and Senior Vice President of Spirit Airlines. "Between TSAPrecheck and Shortcut Security, Spirit is committed to providing a fast, safe and seamless experience for our customers, all while saving them money to spend at their final destinations."
