Hawaiian Airlines to Participate in TSA Pre✓™ Program

Mark Dunkerley, CEO of Hawaiian Airlines

Hawaiian Airlines is proud to participate in the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and the Department of Defense (DoD) efforts to expand the TSA Pre✓™ expedited screening benefits to all U.S. Armed Forces service members, including those serving in the U.S. Coast Guard, Reserves and National Guard. As part of the expanded program, all active duty service men and women that present their Common Access Card (CAC) will now be able to clear security without removing their shoes, coats, belts, liquids or laptop computers for official or leisure travel. The DoD identification number will be used as their Known Traveler Number (KTN).

To ensure that all military members traveling on Hawaiian Airlines can take full advantage of the Pre✓program, it is important to know that:



  • The traveler’s name on the reservation needs to match exactly with the name on their CAC card. For service members that are also a member of the airline’s loyalty program, the name on their HawaiianMiles membership must match exactly with that name on their CAC card;
  • When booking travel on www.hawaiianair.com or by calling reservations, the CAC number should be added to the KTN field on their itinerary or included at the time of check-in at the airport kiosk;
  • For unit movements that are booked via travel agencies, service members should individually ensure that their CAC card number is included in their itinerary.


Hawaii’s airport ticket lobbies were among the first 100 in the country to be a part of the Pre✓program, with expedited TSA security lanes now available at Honolulu International Airport (two Pre✓lanes), Kahului Airport on Maui and Līhu‘e Airport on Kaua‘I.  An additional Pre✓lane at Kona International Airport is expected to open in 2014. Pre✓lanes are also available at Hawaiian Airlines’ checkpoints at Sacramento International Airport, Oakland International Airport, San Jose International Airport and San Diego International Airport.
