COVID-19 and travel at SEA Airport More Information

If you’re a frequent flyer, you’ve got three trusted traveler programs to choose from if you want to speed your way through the security line at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA).

TSA PreCheck

TSA PreCheck allows select frequent flyers of participating airlines and members of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Trusted Traveler programs who are flying on participating airlines, to receive expedited screening benefits. Eligible participants use dedicated screening lanes for screening benefits which include leaving on shoes, light outerwear, and belts, as well as leaving laptops and 3-1-1 compliant liquids in carry-on bags.

TSA PreCheck enrollment available at SEA (temporarily closed)

You can enroll for TSA PreCheck before your next flight right here. An enrollment center is located on the Parking garage level at Skybridge 4. Make sure you have an ID or passport with you. For additional locations or office hours at SEA Airport, go to the TSA's Enrollment Center Locator. Make your visit even quicker by applying online, here.

TSA PreCheck is available at Checkpoints 1 and 4.

If you have children under 18 traveling with you, they can go to the expedited line with you.

Enrollment: CLEAR enrollment centers are housed within each of the airports that use the system. The process is swift. Apply online, and then pop in for a quick iris and fingerprint scan. You can then begin using CLEAR immediately.
