Beginning in February, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) plans to significantly reduce access to TSA Pre-check expedited screening lanes for travelers not enrolled in the Department of Homeland Security Trusted Traveler program.

For crewmembers, in addition to your Known Crewmember access, TSA has approved an enhanced TSA Pre-check eligibility for crewmember and SIDA-badged employees, which will be rolled out once the change is implemented following the necessary IT improvements.  Stay tuned here for more information on the guidelines for this new expedited screening option that will be available for crewmembers.
