Porter Airlines has joined the TSA Precheck® program, enabling its passengers to enjoy the benefits of expedited airport security screening at designated checkpoints when travelling from the U.S.

Expedited screening may allow passengers to keep on shoes, belts, and light outerwear, as well as leave laptops and compliant liquids in carry-on baggage.

“TSA Precheck® allows our passengers to have an even quicker airport experience when departing from the U.S.,” said Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter Airlines, in a news release.

“This is especially true when matched with the convenient arrival process found at our home airport, Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport.”

When the TSA Precheck® symbol is displayed on a boarding pass, passengers may use designated screening checkpoints. In March 2018, 93 percent of TSA Precheck® passengers waited less than five minutes to clear security. 

TSA Precheck® is overseen by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA). Program enrollment does not guarantee expedited screening. TSA will always incorporate random and unpredictable security measures throughout the airport and all passengers are screened.

Porter Airlines currently offers flights to Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City, Fredericton, Saint John, Moncton, Halifax, St. John’s, Stephenville, N.L., Thunder Bay, Sault Ste. Marie, Sudbury, Timmins, Windsor, New York (Newark), Chicago (Midway), Boston and Washington (Dulles), and has seasonal flights to Mt. Tremblant, Que., Myrtle Beach, S.C., Burlington, Vt., and Orlando-Melbourne, Fla.
