WASHINGTON -- The government is expanding its expedited airport security screening program to some international travelers for the first time.

The Transportation Security Administration said passengers flying internationally from 40 US airports may be eligible to receive the expedited screening beginning Tuesday. Travelers enrolled in TSA's PreCheck program are allowed to leave on their shoes, light outerwear and belt, keep their laptop in its case, and keep small amounts of liquids and gels in their carry-on bags.

The program is open to U.S. citizens enrolled in some airline elite frequent flyer programs who are willing to share information about themselves with the government. Previously the program applied only to domestic flights.

Airlines participating in the expedited international screening include Alaska, American, Delta, United and US Airways.
