Reston, Virginia (March 15, 2022) – IDEMIA, the global identity leader and long-time authorized TSA PreCheck® enrollment provider, announced today the launch of a new type of TSA PreCheck enrollment initiative that simplifies the process. The initiative kicks off at Jackson-Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport (JAN) in Jackson, Mississippi this week.
IDEMIA I&S North America is bringing enrollment to the traveler as they depart for their trip. This will facilitate better access and awareness to the many benefits of TSA PreCheck, which helps keep travelers moving through security while also improving aviation security. The initiative starts on March 17th, 2022, at JAN Airport and IDEMIA plans to unveil the TSA PreCheck enrollment initiative at other airports later this year.
The initiative at JAN Airport will be tested across three operational scenarios to evaluate various locations in the airport: pre-security, post-security, and in the gate area.
Across JAN Airport beginning March 17 and running through March 28, IDEMIA enrollment teams will run mobile carts equipped to enroll passengers for TSA PreCheck in five minutes or less. Most passengers will receive their Known Traveler Number (KTN) within 3-5 days.
