MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) – The Montgomery Regional Airport is hosting a TSA PreCheck enrollment event starting Monday.
The pop-up event will run from Aug. 7 through Aug. 11. Eligible travelers will have the opportunity to enroll in the TSA PreCheck expedited screening program.
TSA PreCheck allows low-risk travelers to have a hassle-free experience at the airport security checkpoint. The program is open to U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents. Enrolled PreCheck members can travel with no need to remove shoes, laptops, 3-1-1 liquids, belts, or light jackets. They can also access dedicated screening lanes at over 200 participating U.S. airports.
“We are delighted to offer this TSA PreCheck enrollment event at MGM,” said Wade A. Davis, MGM Executive Director at Montgomery Regional Airport. “With TSA PreCheck, travelers can save valuable time and enjoy a smoother security screening process enhancing the passenger experience. This initiative is one of many ways we strive to improve the overall travel experience for our valued passengers.”
IDEMIA, a TSA PreCheck authorized enrollment provider, offers PreCheck enrollment for $78. If approved, travelers get a five-year membership with the program.
