OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- A TSA program to help passengers check in for their flight faster kicked off at the Oakland International Airport on Sunday.
The Pre Check program lets passengers keep their belts, shoes and jackets on during screening.
The San Francisco International Airport already has the program. It costs $85 a year and is open to frequent fliers on participating airlines or the federal Trusted Traveler Program.
TSA officials say Pre Check is expected to be available in 100 airports nationwide by the end of the year.
