Report: TSA to Debut PreCheck Program at New York JFK Airport

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is rolling out its popular PreCheck program at New York’s JFK Airport sometime early this year, NY1 reports. The program, which will apply to eligible American Airlines passengers and members of the Trusted Traveler program, features a faster screening process that does not require passengers remove their shoes, jacket or belt.
