How to skip lines at the airport

Long airport lines during the holiday travel season can be tiresome.

Here are a few ways you can skip lines at the airport.

A TSA PreCheck is a traveler program that allows members to use expedited security lanes at more than 200 US airports.

Apply for Global Entry. you’ll automatically also get TSA PreCheck and all of its benefits. You can even avoid the general customs line.

Apply for a Clear. it uses biometric data to identify you, allowing you to cut the line and go straight to bag screening.

Clear doesn’t get you into airport security lines but gets you to the front of the screening line.

Some airlines allow you to purchase upgraded tickets that get you access to exclusive security lanes.

You won’t find these at every airport or with every airline, but they can be worth paying for during busy times like the holidays.
