Additional Benefits
TSA has a program called “Pre Check” that will expedite travelers through the security checkpoints at all airports served by TSA. There are two ways to get into the program; the first is by direct referral from the airlines which is generally reserved for Diamond and Platinum level frequent flyers. The second way to get into Pre Check is via membership in the Global Entry Program.

When a member of Global Entry purchases a ticket from most airlines in the USA, they will provide their Global Entry membership number to the airline at the point of purchase and when their boarding card is printed it will reflect that they are Global Entry members and be referred into the Pre Check Lane, which means not only do they jump to the front of the line, but they also get to keep their shoes, jackets, belts and electronics on. Click here for more information
