Five Minute TSA Precheck Enrollment Now at Jackson-Evers Airport
IDEMIA, the global identity leader and long-time authorized TSA PreCheck® enrollment provider, announced the launch of a new type of TSA PreCheck enrollment at Jackson-Evers International Airport.
Beginning March 17 and running through March 28, IDEMIA enrollment teams stationed throughout Jackson-Evers International Airport will manage mobile carts equipped to enroll passengers for TSA PreCheck - a process that greatly speeds up screening and boarding of US passenger flights - in five minutes or less. Most passengers will receive their Known Traveler Number (KTN) within 3-5 days.
IDEMIA I&S North America is bringing TSA PreCheck enrollment to the traveler as they depart for their trip. This will facilitate better access and awareness to the many benefits of TSA PreCheck, which helps keep travelers moving through security while also improving aviation security. The initiative starts on March 17th, 2022, at JAN Airport and IDEMIA plans to unveil the TSA PreCheck enrollment initiative at other airports later this year.
“This is absolutely a game changer for enrollment efficiencies, and we are incredibly excited to roll it out this week at JAN Airport in Jackson, Mississippi,” said Lisa Sullivan, SVP, Travel and Transport for IDEMIA I&S North America. “We are giving passengers greater access and flexibility, making the whole process easier, quicker, and more efficient. Passenger education is a priority for this initiative and key to its success, so we are working closely with our enrollment agents and brand ambassadors who will be stationed throughout the airport in easy-to-spot uniforms to increase awareness, encourage passengers to enroll and answer any questions.”
The new enrollment initiative at JAN Airport will be tested across three operational scenarios to evaluate various locations in the airport: pre-security, post-security and in the gate area.
“This is an exciting development for TSA, the TSA PreCheck Application Program, and the traveling public. We’ve listened to travelers’ feedback and worked with IDEMIA to make enrolling more accessible,” shared Kim Jackson, Federal Security Director with the TSA for the State of Mississippi. “Once we’ve completed this two-week pilot, we will have a better understanding of how it can best accommodate the traveler and where it needs to be within an airport to have maximum benefit. From there, IDEMIA will work with the TSA and airports to expand this improved enrollment process to other markets in the U.S.”
