Clinton National Airport
says it will be the first airport in the country to provide a service to enroll in the Transportation Security Administration's pre-check
program, which expedites airport security screening.
The airport is giving free enrollment to the first 100 to register. It normally costs $85 for five years.
Said an airport news release:
U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents can go through a pre-enrollment process online at www.TSA.gov, make an appointment and complete their enrollment at the center, located on the 3rd level of the terminal. Hours are from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Flyers will need to present documentation to confirm their citizenship or immigration status as well as provide fingerprints.
Once enrolled, travelers can get easier screening at 119 airports used by 11 airlines. The privileges: You don't have to take your shoes and belt off; a laptop may remain in a case and carry liquids and gels in carry-on bags (within the prescribed size limits).
