Who Is Eligible
You can participate in TSA expedited screening if you are a:
U.S. citizen and an AAdvantage® program member who received an opt-in invitation
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
As early as this summer, your online and mobile boarding pass will indicate your eligibility once the TSA reviews and approves this information. Please keep in mind that because TSA always incorporates random security measures, eligibility for expedited screening will be determined on a per-flight basis.
