FAA Promotes Air Travel Safety Tips

Full TSA PreCheck Lane Now Available

Since February 13, 2020, PUW has been fully equipped with TSA PreCheck capabilities. For travelers at PUW, this means that those with TSA PreCheck will find it indicated on their boarding passes. PreCheck passengers may join a separate security line and will merge directly into the front of this line. They have the convenience of leaving electronics and liquids in their bags, and they can also keep their shoes, belts, and light jackets on, eliminating the need for bins. Simply place your bags on the rollers. However, TSA PreCheck passengers must still adhere to the 3.4 ounces (100 ml) liquid rule, and food items may be subject to additional screening.
