OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahoma residents will be able to apply for the Transportation Security Administration’s TSA Pre√ program at the Will Rogers World Airpor terminal beginning Jan. 11-22. The airport, in partnership with TSA, is hosting a temporary enrollment center to facilitate participation in the agency’s popular expedited screening program.
The TSA Pre√ program allows participating flyers to experience a more efficient airport screening process by leaving on their shoes, light jackets and belts and leaving laptops and compliant liquids in carry-on bags. Over 150 airports have dedicated TSA Pre√ lanes and 12 airlines participate in the program including Alaska Airlines, Allegiant, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Hawaiian Airlines, JetBlue Airways, Southwest Airlines, United Airlines, US Airways and Virgin America.
The enrollment center will be located pre-security in the middle of the ticket lobby between the American and Southwest ticket counters, and will not require the applicant to be a ticketed passenger. The center will be open Jan. 11-22 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The office will be closed Saturdays and Sundays.
The TSA Pre√ application process allows U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents to enroll online at tsa.gov and then schedule an appointment at the temporary enrollment center to provide fingerprints, payment and valid identity and citizenship/immigration documentation. The application fee is $85 and can be paid by credit card, money order, company check or certified/cashier’s check. Cash and personal checks are not accepted.
When applying online, applicants should type in the location “Oklahoma City, OK,” then choose “Oklahoma City, OK — Will Rogers World Airport.” When the applicant clicks “Next” at the bottom of the screen, they will be able to select a preferred appointment time.
Once the enrollment is complete, successful applicants will receive a Known Traveler Number (KTN) within a few weeks. The enrollee will then enter that number when booking their airline reservations. The KTN can also be added when booking reservations online via participating airline website, via phone call to the airline reservation center, or with the travel management company making reservations.
Additionally, the KTN can be entered in participating airline frequent flyer profiles, where it will be stored for future reservations.
