A program that lets preapproved air travelers zip through security lines will be expanded later this month to Delta Air Lines passengers at Los Angeles International Airport.
The program, dubbed PreCheck and operated by the Transportation Security Administration, has been available for several months at LAX but only for passengers who fly American Airlines, one of the largest carriers at the airport.
Starting April 24, it will be offered to Delta passengers as well, the TSA announced Friday.
PreCheck lets travelers who get TSA clearance avoid what have become the most annoying steps of post-9/11 screening: removing shoes, belt and coats.
To get approved to participate, passengers must be U.S. citizens and must share background information such as gender and date of birth with the TSA.
