TSA PreCheck is a must, even for passengers who don’t travel all that frequently. And, one of the best parts of the program is that it’s consistently expanding by adding new airlines. On Thursday, the Transportation Security Administration announced that it’s adding five additional domestic and international airlines to the PreCheck program.

The five new partnering airlines include:

With Thursday’s announcement, a total of 47 airlines — both domestic and international — offer PreCheck as an option to passengers. All of the major US carriers now participate in the program, which offers expedited screening, including not needing to remove shoes and laptops from bags, at more than 200 airports around the country. Some US territories, such as Puerto Rico and Guam, also offer PreCheck for eligible passengers.

While there are many airlines that now offer PreCheck to passengers departing the US, there are still some exceptions, such as if your boarding pass is tagged with the dreaded Secondary Security Screening Selection (SSSS). That being said, PreCheck is worth having — especially knowing that it comes for free with a fee credit from several credit cards.
