The Transportation Security Administration announced on Wednesday the addition of five airlines to the PreCheck trusted traveler program.

The list of new airlines includes four foreign carriers, All Nippon Airways; Cathay Pacific Airways; Finnair; and Korean Air; and one U.S. airline, Contour Aviation.

The PreCheck program first launched in October of 2011 to members of Customs and Border Protection’s Trusted Traveler programs such as Global Entry, Sentri, and Nexus flying on a participating airline. Military personnel on active duty are also eligible to use PreCheck, as are those who enroll directly in the program.

Over 115 airports in the United States offer PreCheck.

Passengers who transit a PreCheck security checkpoint don’t have to remove certain items of clothing, such as shoes, belts, and light outerwear, and can leave laptops and liquids in their carry-on luggage.
