TSA pre✓™ program expands at Memphis International Airport
Friday, September 12, 2014
MEMPHIS, TN — The Transportation Security Administration is adding an additional TSA Pre✓™ lane in the Concourse C security checkpoint at Memphis International Airport. Beginning September 15, the new lane will be open daily to eligible travelers between 4:30 a.m. and 7 p.m.
(Concourse C security checkpoint will include expedited screening lane)
TSA Pre✓™ is an expedited screening program that allows travelers to leave on their shoes, light outerwear, and belt, keep their laptop in its case and keep 3-1-1 compliant liquids/gels bag in a carry-on bag.
Travelers interested in applying for the program can do so at the TSA Pre✓™ Application Center inside Memphis International Airport, located between the B and C ticketing lobbies.
The TSA Pre✓™ application process allows U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents to go through a pre-enrollment process online at www.TSA.gov and visit an application center to provide biographic information (e.g. name, date of birth, address, etc.), fingerprints, valid required identity and citizenship / immigration documentation and an application fee of $85 for a five-year membership.
Once approved, travelers will receive a Known Traveler Number (KTN) and will have the opportunity to utilize TSA Pre✓™ lanes at security checkpoints at 119 participating airports on 11 major U.S. airlines: Air Canada, Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Hawaiian Airlines, JetBlue Airways, Southwest Airlines, Sun Country Airlines, United Airlines, US Airways and Virgin America.
As always, TSA continues to incorporate random and unpredictable security measures throughout the airport and no individual will be guaranteed expedited screening.
Additional program information and how to enroll can be found at www.TSA.gov
