Dayton area air travelers can apply for speedy security screening


Air travelers from the Dayton region will have to visit Cincinnati and Columbus to enroll in a new service that speeds up the time spent in airport security screening.

The Transportation Security Administration said Monday it will begin taking applications from travelers Wednesday at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.

TSA is calling the program TSA Pre✓. The application site will be on the baggage claim level next to the Airport Chapel. A similar site is opening in Columbus Thursday at 2700 E. Dublin Granville Road, Suite 450.

More location are coming to Ohio, but for now the Cincinnati and Columbus sites will be where travelers from the Dayton region go to complete their applications, TSA said.

The service lets travelers leave on shoes, light outerwear and a belt, keep a laptop the case. Liquids and gels can stay in carry-on bags provided they meet regulations.

Only U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents can apply. A pre-enrollment process is available online at www.TSA.gov/tsa-precheck. Applicants must then complete enrollment at the airport’s application center to verify identity and provide documentation that confirms citizenship or immigration status. Fingerprints are also required.

The application center will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Applicants with questions may contact the Universal Enrollment Call Center at 1-855-347-8371 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.-10 p.m.

TSA said it is currently expanding to more than 300 application centers across the country.
