Jacksonville travelers can sign up for TSA Precheck 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 jackets or laptops or liquids from their luggage. Instead, passengers can make an appointment to enroll at a temporary office at the airport, after beginning the application process online.
The service will be available for just two weeks: From 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct. 24-28; from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Oct. 31 through Nov. 2 and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Nov. 3 and Nov. 4.
Passengers will become fully enrolled in Precheck after they obtain their “Known Traveler Number,” which can take several days to receive.
“We are delighted to provide this convenient option to travelers coming through our airport,” said JAA CEO Steve Grossman, in a statement. “TSA Precheck is a great way for passengers to ease the transition through security checkpoint when they travel to and from JAX.”
