How It Works

If you are a member of a DHS Trusted Traveler Program, enter your Known Traveler number when booking reservations for travel on Alaska Airlines, or store the number in the Traveler Profile section of your Alaska Airlines My Account profile.

Pre✓™ eligibility is embedded into the barcode information on your mobile or paper boarding pass, and a Pre✓™ indicator will display on eligible boarding passes.

Once you have checked in for a flight and see the Pre✓™ indicator on your boarding pass, look for the designated Pre✓™ area at your participating airport. The TSA will scan the barcode and eligible passengers may be directed to a lane to receive expedited screening.*

*TSA determines criteria for expedited screening on a per-flight-segment basis and eligibility for the TSA Pre✓™ program does not guarantee that you will receive expedited screening for every flight.
