In preparation for the busiest travel season of the year, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will extend its self-service trials to 25 additional US airports around the country.

The TSA introduced the self-service option in 2020, at the height of the pandemic, using ‘touchless’ technology that could instantly match a live photo with a traveler’s passport or other form of identification.

Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) served as the pilot testing airport in 2020, and as a result of its success, the TSA wants to implement the same self-service option in 25 additional US airports around the country.

TSA stated on its website: “Opt-in at select airports to participate in the TSA PreCheck Touchless Identity Solution program during check-in with participating airlines. Store your participation preference, TSA PreCheck KTN, and Passport Number in the airline’s mobile app. By opting in, your identity can be verified without presenting a physical ID at the bag drop, the security checkpoint, and at the boarding gate.”
