Thousands of air travelers decided to get a jump on Thanksgiving and avoid the lines by flying out a couple of days early.

To help thin the herd of passengers going through security, the TSA rolled out its new Pre-Check program. It essentially screens travelers before they get to the airport so that they can fly through security.

“We’re making an assessment, a real time threat assessment, and assessing you when you come into the airport and saying you’re eligible for this program,” David Bassett, a TSA Federal Security Director, said.

Using a priority lane, those who are Pre-Check selected don’t have to take their shoes, belts and jackets off when going through a scanner, and they can leave their laptops and 3-1-1 liquids and gels bags packed in their carry-on going through the X-Ray machine.

One hundred other airports across the country also have the Pre-Check program in place.
