TSA to expand speedier screening -- for a fee Published: July 19, 2013

The Transportation Security Administration plans to dramatically expand its program to get travelers through airport checkpoints faster by inviting them to pay a nominal feed for voluntary background checks, according to USA Today.

The site reports TSA’s pre-check program offers travelers separate lines at checkpoints, where they leave on shoes and light coats, and keep laptops in their bags.

The free program operates at 40 airports and now covers members of frequent-flier programs for Alaska, American, Delta, Hawaiian, United, US Airways and Virgin America airlines, according to USA Today.
