KTN is an expedited process that allows passengers to go through security checks faster at the airport. However, only registered and subscribed members can enjoy this benefit. US airports have a different security check section for passengers with KTN number. To pass through this separate and expedited security check, you must have entered your KTN number on the air ticket during booking.

Always ensure you have all your travel documents in order to ensure that you are not denied boarding or entry. Minor mistakes can easily affect your flight and even lead to you missing your flight. Make inquiries in advance when in doubt.

Why Do I Need Both KTN and Redress Number On My Ticket?

A KTN is for TSA Pre check. However, the redress number basically overrides your name if someone on the no fly list has a similar name as yours. Most people don't have similar names, but if you do, you can apply to get a can't fly redressed. At the end of the process, you get a redress number which you enter in that field in your ticket to enable you to fly.
