TSA Precheck — the federal agency’s fast-track through airport security — has finally reached Burbank Bob Hope Airport, officials said Thursday.
Travelers on Delta, Alaska, Southwest and United who are eligible for precheck can now use the service at Burbank’s A and B Terminals. But the release says the service will only be available during “peak periods” which leads me to believe precheck will not be available at all times.
The program allows travelers who give certain information to the government and pay a small fee to go through expedited security screening. For awhile, frequent travelers lauded it, saying they could speed through aircraft security. But as more people have become eligible to use it, many have said queues have gotten a lot longer.
