Expedited security screening program available at SLO airport
–After the tremendous success of January’s Pre registration event—more than 1,200 people participated in the two-week offering—IdentoGO, an official partner of the Transportation Security Administration, will be onsite at the San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport again this month to help travelers register for the TSA Pre program. Pre is an expedited security screening program that allows members to keep on light jackets, shoes and belts during the airport security process, as well as to keep their laptops and compliant liquids in their bag.
IdentoGO’s mobile enrollment RV will be in front of the old airport terminal from Feb. 22 through March 1. There will be several appointment opportunities for travelers to apply:
• Feb. 19 – 28, 2019 from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. (Closed Saturday & Sunday)
• March 1, 2019 from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.
To enroll, attendees must bring a government-issued photo ID with proof of U.S. citizenship (i.e., a passport or birth certificate; names on documents must match exactly) and complete a 10-minute fingerprinting process.
For more information or to book an appointment, visit universalenroll.dhs.gov and select San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport as your location. Please note that while walk-ins are accepted, participants who do not make an appointment should be prepared to wait an hour or longer. For all registrants, standard airport parking rates apply.
TSA Pre memberships are valid at airports across the country. While the San Luis Obispo Airport doesn’t currently have a separate Pre lane, it does make accommodations for Pre passengers by permitting them to keep on coats, shoes and belts during the checkpoint process.
Finally, the IdentoGO enrollment process is for Pre only, and is not able to enroll people in other travel programs such as Global Entry.
