Airline passengers wanting to cut their wait time in security lines can now pay for easier access at John Glenn Columbus International Airport. An enrollment center will be open for a brief time.
The Transportation Security Administration’s Pre-Check screening program will offer travelers a chance to enroll for the pass at an airport application center.
After paying $85 and undergoing a background check, passengers will not be required to remove their shoes, laptops, liquids, belts or light jackets when going through the security checkpoint. Instead, they can enter through a designated TSA Pre-Check lane. The membership lasts for five years.
The airport’s enrollment center will be open until November 18. There are two permanent TSA enrollment centers in the Columbus area: one on East Dublin Granville Road and the other on Stoneridge in Gahanna.
