How many times have you stood in line at the airport watching others breeze through security with no hassle? By enrolling in TSA Pre✓®, you too can breeze through security. Keep your shoes, jacket and belt on; your laptop in its case; 3-1-1 compliant liquids in your bag; and enjoy a better overall travel experience. TSA Pre✓® allows low-risk travelers to experience faster, more efficient screening at participating U.S. airport checkpoints for domestic and international travel.
Airlines that serve AVP, including Allegiant, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, and United Airlines participate in TSA Pre✓®. A passenger must be flying on a participating airline in order to be eligible to use the TSA Pre✓® lane.
A temporary enrollment center will be located at the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport, in the Airport Meditation Room, from Monday, August 28, 2017 through Friday, September 1, 2017. This location will be open Monday to Wednesday (10 AM-2 PM & 3 PM-7 PM), and Thursday to Friday (7 AM-11 AM & 12 PM-4 PM). This temporary enrollment center at AVP is your best chance to avoid driving for hours to another enrollment center.
Travelers who are U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents can begin the process by pre-enrolling online at www.identoGO.com/TSA-PreCheck. Click on the words “Apply Now!” and follow the prompts to set up an appointment to visit the temporary enrollment center at AVP. Walk-ins are accepted, but will be enrolled on a first-come, first-served basis around scheduled appointments.
More information on the application process is available at www.identoGO.com/TSA-PreCheck.
Applicants are required to make an in-person visit to the enrollment center to verify citizenship or immigration status, as well as provide fingerprints. There is a nonrefundable application processing fee of $85.
Once approved, passengers will receive a Known Traveler Number (KTN) making them eligible to utilize TSA Pre✓® lanes on a consistent basis at security checkpoints at airports nationwide. Travelers are encouraged to save their KTN in their frequent flyer profiles with the airlines. Children 12 and younger are permitted to use the TSA Pre✓® lane when traveling with a TSA Pre✓® eligible parent or guardian.
Nineteen airlines currently participate in TSA Pre✓® including Aeromexico, Air Canada, Alaska Airlines, Allegiant, American Airlines, Cape Air, Delta Air Lines, Etihad Airways, Frontier Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, JetBlue Airways, Lufthansa, OneJet, Seaborne Airlines, Southwest Airlines, Sun Country Airlines, United Airlines, Virgin America, and WestJet.
Over four million people have enrolled nationwide in TSA Pre✓® since it was first offered in December 2013. TSA Pre✓® lanes are already available at numerous airports nationwide and will soon be available at AVP.
As always, TSA will screen all travelers and no individual will be guaranteed expedited screening.
