Screening for Passengers 75 and Older

 

Passengers 75 and older can receive some form of expedited screening through risk-based intelligence-driven security that allows TSA to better focus resources on passengers who more likely pose a risk.

 

Screening Benefits

 

You may leave on your shoes and light jacket during screening.

 

If you alarm during security screening, you may be required to remove your shoes for further screening or undergo a pat-down. You can request to be seated during this portion of the screening.

 

Passengers 75 and older who are unable to stand for screening will be screened through other security methods.

 

Should you travel with medical devices and/or implants, other screening procedures may apply.
