AA Known Traveler Number is a unique designator that is assigned to individuals that choose to participate in the American Airlines/TSA screening pilot programs.
What is the new pilot program AA Known Traveler?
Known Traveler (KT) is a pilot program began October 4, 2011 Right now AA is participating with the TSA in the program at MIA at the D2 checkpoint, DFW airport in Terminal C, checkpoint C30. The program also includes members of the governments trusted traveler programs (NEXUS, Global Entry, and SENTRI) to be a part of an expedited screening process.
How does the AA Known Traveler Program benefit the customer?
This pre-flight screening concept could benefit travelers through expedited security checkpoints, which will result in no longer needing to remove certain items. Once the TSA determines that a passenger is eligible for expedited screening, information is embedded in the barcode of the passenger's boarding pass. The TSA reads the barcode at designated TSA PreCheck airport locations and eligible passengers may be directed to a lane where they will receive expedited screening.
Customers have asked us to place their number in their PNR?
You can add the trusted traveler number (the global membership ID number) to a PNR but not an airline specific KT status. The AA Known Traveler designator will be added to agency created Pnr's prior to the TSA transmission for vetting purposes.
Does the AA Known Traveler number go in the same field as the Redress number?
The trusted traveler or CBP ID number should go in the Known Traveler number field. It is NOT the same thing as a redress number. The mask should have a field for both of these numbers. AA will also allow passengers to store their numbers in their profile with the airline. For AA, this means even if the booking is made with a 3rd party and they have no way of entering the KT number, AA will pick it up from the customer profile.
Can the customer have a CBP-ID (US Customs and Border Protection Trusted Traveler Program ID) and an AA Known Traveler designator?
No - A customer may only have one or the other.
Is it possible for a traveler to have a Redress number and a Known Traveler number? If a customer has both of these numbers do we have to enter both of them?
It is possible to have both of these numbers and they need to be placed in the appropriate field or they will not work correctly.
