Does Air Canada have TSA PreCheck?
Yes, Air Canada offers the added convenience of TSA PreCheck for passengers coming from select airports in the U.S. You’ll need to first be approved through the DHS Trusted Traveler Program, and then enter your Known Traveler Number at the time of ticket purchase. If you’re approved, a TSA Pre✓™ indicator will be embedded on your boarding pass’s barcode. When it’s scanned, airport staff will point you to the TSA PreCheck lane. Air Canada also prints a TSA PreCheck indicator directly on your boarding pass. You’ll know you’ve have been cleared for expedited screening ahead of time and can mosey on over to the fast lane.
