The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has partnered with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and select airlines, including American Airlines, to launch a voluntary expedited screening program with a select group of known travelers.

How It Works
When you opt in to the program, we share certain information with the TSA Secure Flight System, including:
Your AAdvantage program tier status and /or U.S. CBP Trusted Traveler program information
Your passenger reservation information
Once TSA reviews and approves this information, the barcode on your boarding pass will contain information indicating your eligibility. Please keep in mind that because TSA always incorporates random security measures, eligibility for expedited screening will be determined on a per-flight basis.
How Can I Become A Participant?
If you're an AAdvantage program member:
Go to AA.com, select My Account and log in
Within My Account, go to the Personal Information and Password tab
If you are eligible to participate in the program, you will see an opt-in field for the TSA Expedited Screening Program
If you're a participant in a Customs and Border Protection Program (CBP) and not already an AAdvantage member:
At time of booking, simply provide your CBP 9-digit PASS ID within each reservation.
