Fiji’s national carrier Fiji Airways has been included in an expanded TSA Pre-Check program run by the Transportation Security Administration.

TSA Pre-Check is an expedited security screening program that enables low-risk travelers to enjoy smart and efficient screening experiences at more than 200 airports in the United States of America.

According to Fiji Airways, eligible guests travel with ease and keep their shoes, belts and light jackets on, and keep 3-1-1 liquids and food items in their bags.

It stated that about 99 per cent of TSA Pre-Check passengers in dedicated lanes waited less than 10 minutes at airport checkpoints.

Fiji Airways managing director and CEO Andre Viljoen said the airline’s inclusion in TSA Pre-Check was an added benefit for its customers.

“We are delighted to be included in this program as it will allow our guests to have a more seamless experience when they leave the U.S. to arrive in Fiji. Most of our visitors from America are here for a holiday and convenient screening will only enhance their entire journey,” Mr Viljoen said.

The airline provides daily services between Nadi and Los Angeles, and up to five times to San Francisco.
