Jacksonville Aviation Authority has announced that travelers can sign up for the Transportation Security Administration Precheck program at Jacksonville International Airport during a limited period this fall.
TSA Precheck allows individuals to travel securely and efficiently without having to remove items such as shoes, belts and light jackets or liquids and laptops from their luggage.
For a two-week period, passengers can make an appointment to enroll in TSA Precheck at a temporary office located in the JAX terminal, but must first begin the application process online.
Appointments can be made for the following dates and times:
Oct. 24-28 – 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Oct. 31 – Nov. 2 – 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Nov. 3-4 – 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Passengers are fully enrolled in Precheck only after they obtain a “Known Traveler Number” (KTN), which could take several days to receive.
“We are delighted to provide this convenient option to travelers coming through our airport,” said JAA CEO Steve Grossman. “TSA Precheck is a great way for passengers to ease the transition through security checkpoint when they travel to and from JAX.”
