PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Expedited screening benefits, known as TSA Pre Check, will soon expand to cover checkpoints at all three of Phoenix Sky Harbor terminals.

TSA Pre Check has been operational at the Terminal 4 A checkpoint since August 2012.

The C and D checkpoints at Terminal 4 are expected to go operational with the program by the end of the year.

TSA Pre Check allows pre-approved travelers to leave on their shoes, light outerwear and belt, keep their laptop in its case and their 3-1-1 compliant liquids/gels bag in a carry-on in select screening lanes.

Passengers who are eligible for TSA Pre Check include U.S. citizens of frequent traveler programs invited by participating airlines, U.S. citizens who are members of a U.S. Customs and Border Protection Trusted Traveler program, Canadian citizens who are members of CBP's NEXUS program and passengers traveling on a participating airline who TSA proactively prescreens using its Secure Flight system.

Later this year TSA will launch an application program, allowing more U.S. citizens to enroll in TSA Pre Check.

Currently, passengers traveling on Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Hawaiian Airlines, United Airlines and US Airways that are eligible for TSA Pre Check receive expedited screening benefits at all three of Sky Harbor's Terminals - Terminal 2, both checkpoints at Terminal 3 and the Terminal 4 A and B checkpoints.
