Fast track through security

We know your time is precious and you would prefer to relax in one of the some 650 oneworld lounges rather than wait in line at airport security. That is why, at select airports worldwide, oneworld Emerald frequent flyers (including FlySmiLes Platinum members) can access the ‘Fast Track’ or ‘Priority Lanes' at security check points no matter which cabin they are traveling in. See below for details and the list of airports where this privilege is available:


Due to restrictions or local agreements with Security Fast Track facility operators, not all oneworld carriers are currently able to extend this benefit to all Emerald tier customers.

First and business class check-in desks and lounges are not available at all airports. Fast track is not available at all airports. Priority baggage handling is not available on flights operated by British Airways. Extra baggage allowance benefits differ for Sapphire and Emerald level members. oneworld benefits are available only to passengers on scheduled flights that are both marketed and operated by a oneworld member airline (marketed means that there must be a oneworld member airline’s flight number on your ticket).
