10 Tips to Speed Through Airport Lines
When you’re trying to catch a flight, airport lines are a gigantic hassle. Between checking your luggage and getting through security, lines at the airport are simply a part of air travel — but with the right strategies, there are plenty of ways to save time. Here are 10 tips for speeding through airport lines so you can arrive at the gate on time and stress-free.
Get TSA PreCheck
It requires extra leg work, but signing up for TSA PreCheck is one of the best ways to sail through security lines at the airport. The process requires a brief online application followed by an $85 five-year membership fee, an in-person interview, a background check, and fingerprinting. Once you’re approved, you’ll be able to go through the designated PreCheck line, which doesn’t require all of the obstacles that hold up security lines — like removing liquids and electronic devices and taking off your shoes.
Apply for Global Entry
If you travel internationally, applying for Global Entry is an excellent way to avoid those daunting customs lines. Similar to TSA PreCheck, Global Entry allows for low-risk, pre-approved travelers to receive expedited service in the airport. The application costs $100 for a five-year membership. As members of the “Trusted Travelers Program,” these travelers can skip the customs lines after disembarking the plane by using the Global Entry kiosks. Not only do the kiosks read passports, but they also scan fingerprints and allow travelers to declare goods electronically.
Become a Frequent Flyer
There are a lot of benefits to frequent flyer programs, but one major perk is speeding through airport lines. When you become an elite member of an airline program, benefits include designated check-in lines, exclusive security lanes, and priority boarding. Altogether, these advantages translate to spending less time in line, which means there’s more time for a drink at your preferred airline’s lounge.
Sign Up for Clear
If you want to skip airport lines entirely, then signing up for Clear is the way to go. Certified by Homeland Security and available at over 50 U.S. airports, the private company uses biometric technology to scan your irises and fingerprints, turning them into an encrypted code that is unique only to you. You just need to pay the $179 annual fee. The technology negates the need for any traditional ID documents and once approved, you can bypass the TSA checkpoint for IDs and skip ahead to the front of the PreCheck line.
MiFlight is another technological solution to avoiding long lines at the airport. The crowd-sourcing app keeps track of how many people are waiting in line at security checkpoints throughout airports across the world. Use MiFlight to decide when to leave for the airport or to decipher which security checkpoint will get you to your gate the fastest.
