FAIRBANKS, Alaska – The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will showed off their new TSA Pre✓™ enrollment center in Fairbanks Thursday.

TSA Pre✓™ is an expedited screening program offered by TSA that allows pre-approved airline travelers to leave on their shoes, light outer wear and belt, keep their laptop in its case and their 3-1-1 compliant liquids/gels bag in a carry-on in
select screening lanes.

A dedicated TSA Pre✓™ lane has been available at Fairbanks
International Airport since February 2014.

Members of the public who are U.S. citizens or Lawful Permanent Residents can nowapply for TSA Pre✓™ in-person at the Fairbanks center.

An in-person visit is required so applicants can verify their identity, provide fingerprints and make available documentation to confirm citizenship or immigration status.

TSA Pre✓™ in Anchorage is in the University Center and in Fairbanks in the Washington Plaza.
