CALGARY, Canada – WestJet today announced it has sped up security processing for its guests by offering TSA Precheck to eligible travellers.

CALGARY, Canada – WestJet today announced it has sped up security processing for its guests by offering TSA Precheck to eligible travellers. This innovative program offers trusted guests a less-intrusive search when departing from U.S. airports.

“We are pleased to offer TSA Precheck and make transborder travel easier for our guests,” said Ed Baklor, WestJet Senior Vice-President, Guest Experience. “Part of a larger suite of amenities aimed at the business market, the introduction of this smart security experience will be appreciated by time-conscious business travellers and guests who are constantly on the go.”

When using one of the program’s dedicated security lanes, TSA Precheck members can leave their shoes, belt, or light jacket on while passing through the scanner. Laptops and liquids can remain in carry-on baggage.

Travellers eligible for TSA Precheck include:

• Canadian citizens who are members of NEXUS
• U.S. citizens and U.S. permanent residents who are members of NEXUS, SENTRI, Global Entry, or TSA PreCheck

Initially, eligible WestJet guests should collect a boarding pass from a WestJet guest assistance counter; however, self-serve enhancements will be available in 2016.
