Active-duty military eligible for expedited BWI security screening

March 26, 2013|By Candy Thomson, The Baltimore Sun

Active-duty military personnel using BWI Marshall Airport are eligible to participate in Pre-Check, an expedited security screening, the Transportation Security Administration announced Wednesday.

TSA officers staffing the Pre-Check station at Concourse D will scan a service member's Common Access Card to determine if they qualify; service members do not have to be in uniform to be considered. Eligible passengers may be directed to a lane that will allow them to leave their shoes, light outerwear and belt on, keep their laptop in its case and their liquids and gels bag in a carry-on.

BWI is the ninth airport to offer the service to the military. Other participating airports are: Charlotte Douglas International, Denver International, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International, Honolulu International, Lambert-St. Louis International, Ronald Reagan Washington National, Seattle-Tacoma International and Washington Dulles International.
