CHEYENNE, Wyo. – The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced that local residents will have the opportunity to enroll in the popular TSA Pre✓® expedited screening program at Cheyenne Regional Airport for one week later this month.
The TSA Pre✓® application center will be open June 19 - 21 from 10 a.m. - 7 p.m. and June 22 - 23 from 7 a.m. - 4 p.m. The application center will be located at the airport ticket counter.
TSA Pre✓® allows Trusted Travelers to leave on their shoes, light outerwear and belt. At some airports, passengers can keep their laptop in its case and keep 3-1-1 compliant liquids/gels in a carry-on bag. Travelers who want to enjoy the benefits of TSA Pre✓® on a consistent basis are encouraged to apply to the program.
The process to apply as a Trusted Traveler begins online. Click on the words “Apply Now” to make an appointment to complete the application process in-person at the Cheyenne on-airport TSA Pre✓® application center. Applicants must bring a current U.S. passport or a driver’s license and certified copy of a birth certificate, and fingerprints will be collected during the in-person session.
The application fee is $85 and Trusted Traveler status is good for five years. It can be paid at the time of your appointment by credit card, money order, company check or certified/cashier’s check. Cash and personal checks are not accepted. Walk-ins are permitted and will be accommodated around scheduled appointments.
Once approved, individuals will receive a Known Traveler Number making them eligible to utilize TSA Pre✓® lanes on a consistent basis at security checkpoints at airports nationwide. Children 12 and under are permitted to use the TSA Pre✓® lane when traveling with a TSA Pre✓® eligible parent or guardian.
Thirty-seven airlines participate in TSA Pre✓® and travelers departing a U.S. airport flying on any of those airlines are eligible for expedited screening. As always, TSA continues to incorporate random and unpredictable security measures both seen and unseen throughout the airport. All travelers will be screened, and no individual will be guaranteed expedited screening.
