TSA Guidance for Travelers

The TSA provides general traveler information on guidelines and regulations.

TSA Precheck

TSA Precheck is a program that allows enrolled customers to expedite security screening.  Customers use a dedicated lane for identification and verification by TSA.  Once verified, customers may leave their shoes and belts on, and leave their laptops, liquids, in their carry-on luggage.  Information about eligibility and the application process can be found at the TSA Precheck website, or visit the TSA Precheck Enrollment Center located next to baggage claim 6 in Terminal 2.  The enrollment center is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays only from 8:00am - 4:00pm, and closed on Holidays. Walk-ins are accepted; however, customers with appointments are given priority.
