Avoca, PA (August 7, 2019) – 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 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 Board Room, from Monday, September 9, 2019 through Friday, September 13, 2019. This location will be open Monday to Wednesday (9 AM-1 PM & 2 PM-6 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/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/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.
If you’re eligible and approved for the TSA Pre✓® program, you will be given a Known Traveler Number “KTN” to use when making flight reservations. KTNs can also be saved in an airline or travel agency profile. Participating airlines will print a TSA Pre✓® indicator on your boarding pass. When you arrive at the airport, look for signs for the TSA Pre✓® lanes and present your boarding pass and Government-issued ID to the Travel Document Checker. Children ages 12 and under may join you in the TSA Pre✓® lane.
