Reston, Virginia (September 5th 2022) – In 2022, IDEMIA, a global identity leader and long-time authorized TSA PreCheck® enrollment provider, has introduced pilots and long-term deployments of an innovative new on-site TSA PreCheck enrollment initiative that provides travelers with an even more convenient way to enroll in the program. This new, simplified service delivers TSA PreCheck enrollment in five minutes or less, and most passengers will receive their Known Traveler Number (KTN) within three to five days.
Staffed by IDEMIA TSA PreCheck Enrollment Ambassadors with mobile enrollment carts, the service was successfully demonstrated for two-week periods at Jackson–Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport (JAN),Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport (GPT) in Mississippi and at Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport (SDF) in Kentucky. Longer-term deployments of the initiative have been launched at at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) in Texas and most recently, Orlando International Airport (MCO) in Florida.
This is a game changer that simplifies TSA PreCheck enrollment, and we have had great success rolling this out to travelers while they are already at the airport. IDEMIA is a pioneer in identity verification and validation technologies and our innovations are helping streamline the TSA PreCheck enrollment process for travelers.
Lisa Sullivan, SVP, Travel and Transport for IDEMIA I&S North America
Under this initiative, IDEMIA TSA PreCheck Enrollment Ambassadors are stationed in the airport in easy-to-spot uniforms to increase awareness of the program and to assist passengers with TSA PreCheck enrollment.
The first test of this mobile enrollment initiative at Jackson proved very popular with travelers. Travelers are enrolling in TSA PreCheck knowing that 94 percent of TSA PreCheck passengers will wait less than five minutes in line on their future trips, and travelers are confident knowing their TSA PreCheck eligibility will streamline their transit through the airport: they can keep their shoes, belts and light jackets on and leave their compliant 3-1-1 liquids and laptops in their bag.
Kim Jackson, TSA’s Federal Security Director for the State of Mississippi
We were glad that Louisville was an early adopter of this new and important evolution of TSA PreCheck enrollment. Anytime we can offer travelers an opportunity to enhance their airport experience is a win for us and our community. We look forward to learning how best to deliver this new service for people traveling to and from our region.
Dan Mann, Executive Director of the Louisville Regional Airport Authority
In the coming months, IDEMIA will continue to launch this service at additional airports nationwide. A trusted provider to TSA, IDEMIA has processed more than 14.5 million enrollments in TSA PreCheck since 2013.
