The TSA PreCheck, where pre-approved travelers can get through security quicker, is now available in Iowa.

According to WHO, the Des Moines airport is the first airport in Iowa to have the security screening, TSA PreCheck.

The security measure allows travelers who have been pre-approved get through checkpoints faster because they do not have to remove their shoes or belts. Passengers also are allowed to leave liquids in their carry-on bags while they pass through security, according to the report.

WHO reported that the PreCheck program is available in 97 airports.
