Pre-check Event being held at La Crosse Regional Airport

A temporary enrollment center is open at the La Crosse Regional Airport for passengers to apply for TSA Pre-check. The center will be open October 14-18 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m and 1-5 p.m.

TSA Pre-check is a screening program allowing members to leave their shoes on, light outerwear and belt in designated screening lanes. Members also may keep their laptop in its case and 3-1-1 compliant liquids/gels bag in a carry-on.

A TSA Pre-check lane at LSE has been operational since summer of 2015.

TSA Pre-check is available when flying domestically and when departing from a U.S. airport to a foreign country.

Applicants will need to provide fingerprints and proof of citizenship or legal residency and pay an $85 fee for a five-year membership. When approved, travelers will receive a “Known Traveler Number” to input when making airline reservations and can utilize TSA Pre-check lanes at select checkpoints.
