Editor's Note

This story has been updated

Since 2013, TSA PreCheck has allowed users to avoid the sometimes inevitable hassle of waiting in an airport security line, coupled with the annoying process of removing your shoes, laptop and other items from your carry-on bag.

Thanks to a TSA PreCheck-only line, you don't have to worry about doing any of that, rather you simply load your luggage onto the carousel and pass through the old-style walk-through machines. For just a small fee of $85 for a five-year membership, TSA PreCheck allows preapproved, low-risk travelers to expedite their way through airport security at 200-plus U.S. airports.

Ninety-five percent of PreCheck users waited less than five minutes to get through airport security in August, per data from the Transportation and Security Administration. But whether you can experience PreCheck in all its glory depends on the airport you are departing from and the airline you are flying.

Currently, more than 200 U.S. airports and 85 domestic and foreign airlines participate in the program, which is outlined below.

Before you book your next flight, consider enrolling in TSA PreCheck and remember that several credit cards cover the program application costs.

Also, double-check this guide to verify your airport and airline both participate, before entering your Known Traveler Number at the time of booking, to ensure the green precheck symbol appears on your boarding pass.

Which airlines have TSA PreCheck?

Although the airport you are traveling through may offer a TSA PreCheck line, you must also ensure that the airline you are traveling on participates in the program.

For example, I could not use TSA PreCheck when flying from LAX to Paris's Orly Airport (ORY) in the spring because the airline I flew, French Bee, is not one of the 83 airlines offering TSA PreCheck for its passengers.

If you are flying from the below list of domestic and international carriers, don't forget to enter your Known Traveler Number when booking your reservation to ensure the green TSA Pre Check checkmark shows up on your boarding pass.

Most major carriers, domestic and foreign, participate and some smaller airlines you may have never heard of. Although some low-cost airlines, such as Breeze and Spirit offer TSA PreCheck, others, like French Bee and Play do not.

Here are the 81 airlines currently offering TSA PreCheck:

Bottom line

Remember, TSA PreCheck is only helpful at domestic airports throughout the U.S. since it allows members expedited entry through TSA Security.

Even so, the $85 investment for new members every five years, and $70 for renewals thereafter, is well worth it, given that you can use TSA PreCheck at more than 250 airports when flying with any of more than 80 airlines.

Be sure to reference this guide for any updates on where you can use TSA PreCheck.
