Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) June 14, 2016
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has been heavily scrutinized over the past few weeks for wait times at airport check points that have caused significant delays – and headaches – for travelers nationally. But today, Thanks Again®, the leading consumer loyalty and engagement platform for airports, announced Thanks Again members now have the ability to redeem reward points for memberships in TSA Precheck via a newly launched multi-airport app. This will allow Thanks Again members to skip lengthy airport security lines, all while providing an effective and efficient security alternative. TSA Precheck members traveling through airport security checkpoints do not need to remove their shoes, light jacket or belt, and can leave laptops and liquids in their carry-on bags.
“Whether you are a frequent flyer or fly just a few times a year, we all want the most efficient air travel process possible – and that starts with a reasonably short security line at the airport,” said Marc Ellis, CEO of Thanks Again. “Giving our members the option to use their points toward TSA Precheck and helping them expedite the screening process is just another way Thanks Again is making travel more rewarding.”
Using the new Thanks Again app, members can easily locate the places they want to shop, park or dine across a growing network of 100+ airports, effortlessly keep track of the Thanks Again Points they rack up, view and determine which reward option(s) they want to select and redeem for travel-related rewards that help them vacation faster.
“We’re proud to partner with Thanks Again to offer TSA Precheck to their members,” stated John Sammon, Chief Marketing Officer for the TSA. “This partnership will allow more travelers to experience the advantages of TSA Precheck which is the best way for travelers to shorten the wait in airport security lines while also helping keep our airports and airlines safe and secure."
