The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is implementing an expedited security screening program at participating airports that allows certain travelers to move through security checkpoints with greater efficiency and ease when traveling on both domestic and international itineraries commencing in the United States.
This TSA expedited screening initiative directs select travelers to a dedicated screening lane, where you may not need to remove the following items:

According to the TSA, members of the CBP’s Global EntryTM, NEXUS, or SENTRI Trusted Traveler programs who are U.S. or Canadian citizens are most likely to be eligible for expedited screening. For more information about Global EntryTM or other Trusted Traveler programs, visit: delta.com/globalentry.
To be considered for expedited screening under TSA Precheck, passengers must choose to opt in to the program via the MyProfile section of delta.com. When you opt in to the program, we share certain information with the TSA Secure Flight system, including:
Once TSA reviews and approves this information, the barcode on your boarding pass will contain information indicating your eligibility. Please keep in mind that because TSA always incorporates random security measures, eligibility for expedited screening will be determined on a per-flight basis. TSA determines eligibility and will always apply a random factor associated with security measures. Please contact the TSA for information and answers to questions.
