The screening process is getting faster and easier for some passengers at John F. Kennedy International Airport.
Federal officials announced Tuesday that the Transportation Security Administration's Pre-Check Program will be enacted at the airport early this year.
Eligible American Airlines passengers as well as members of the Customs and Border Protection’s Trusted Traveler programs will go through an expedited screening process which does not require taking off shoes, a jacket or belt.
The passengers must be flying domestic and volunteer information about themselves before flying, which is embedded in a bar code on their boarding pass.
The pilot program is already in use at several other airports.
