Why doesn’t Cayman Airways participate in the US TSA pre-check programme for expedited security clearance? If I am travelling from one of the cities with competing flights to Cayman Airways (Miami, Chicago, New York) to Grand Cayman and have a choice of expedited security clearance (American, United, etc) vs the slow lanes (Cayman Airways), I will always choose the airline with TSA pre-check. It seems to me that by not participating in pre-check, Cayman Airways puts themselves at a competitive disadvantage.
Auntie’s answer: Your point is well taken; I cannot imagine anyone enjoys being stuck on ridiculously long security lines. But I have some good news. Fabian Whorms, Cayman Airways CEO, explained that the pre-check programme was initially only for North America-based airlines, but it “now allows participation of non-US airlines”.
Mr Whorms said that Cayman Airways is in the “early stages of working with the TSA to become a pre-check partner airline” and the airline hopes to implement the programme by the second quarter of this year.
He added that as the time gets closer to activating the programme, the airline will provide further information.
