Chippewa Valley, Wisc. – The Chippewa Valley Regional Airport (EAU) and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will open a temporary TSA Pre✓® enrollment center at the airport, Sept. 24 – 28.
The temporary enrollment center will be located at the north end of the terminal. Hours are from 8:00 a.m. to Noon and 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday of this week. Passengers do not have to purchase an airline ticket to access the enrollment center.
TSA Pre✓® is an expedited screening program that enables members to leave on their shoes, light outerwear and belt in designated screening lanes. Passengers also can keep their laptop in its case and their 3-1-1 compliant liquids/gels baggie in a carry-on.
“This is the 7th time we’ve hosted a temporary enrollment center at the airport,” said Airport Director Charity Zich. “Each time has been successful, and we’re pleased to offer area residents another opportunity to apply for TSA’s popular expedited screening program.”
Travelers can make an appointment online and then must complete the application process in person at an enrollment center like the one at EAU. Walk-ins also will be accepted on a space-available basis. At the enrollment center, applicants will provide fingerprints and proof of citizenship or legal residency and pay an $85 fee, which covers a five-year membership.
Approved members will receive a Known Traveler Number (KTN) that can be accessed online in about a week. The member should enter the KTN in the “Known Traveler Number” field when booking airline reservations. The KTN also can be stored in the member’s frequent flyer profile with participating airlines.
