  • PreCheck expands to Boston’s Logan airport
    The Transportation Security Administration is launching its PreCheck program this week at Boston’s Logan International Airport. The program allows pre-screened travelers to pass through security checkpoints without removing their shoes or belts. The TSA estimates that once the program is in place across the U.S., up to 70% of travelers could use it.
