Oakland, CA – (February 16, 2018): Oakland International Airport is inviting passengers to enroll on-site in the popular TSA Pre✓® expedited screening program. The temporary enrollment event returns to Oakland from February 26th through March 9th, 2018, following positive customer response to similar enrollment events over the past year.
TSA Pre✓® has more than 450 lanes at over 180 U.S. airports, and for a limited time, Oakland International Airport is hosting a temporary enrollment event in its Terminal 2 check-in lobby, adjacent to the TSA screening area.
“OAK is seeing its highest number of passengers in ten years, and will likely set a new record for passenger traffic next year. With so many new destinations domestically and abroad, it is great timing to bring the TSA Pre✓® Enrollment center back to Oakland,” said Bryant L. Francis, Director of Aviation at the Port of Oakland, which operates Oakland International Airport. “We regularly hear from our customers about how much they appreciate the convenience of flying OAK, and expedited screening helps make Oakland an even easier choice.”
Ticketed customers already planning to be in the Airport during the two weeks of the event may find it worthwhile to make an appointment, as well as others who simply find it easier to come to OAK. Walk-ins are accepted upon availability.
“TSA Pre✓® enrollment is coming to the East Bay’s airport, so don’t miss this opportunity to enroll in a program that streamlines the security screening process for Trusted Travelers,” said David Von Damm, TSA Federal Security Director at OAK. “Act now to make an appointment so you can use the dedicated TSA Pre✓® lane the next time you fly out of Oakland.”
TSA Pre✓® is an expedited screening program that enables identified low-risk air travelers to enjoy a smart and more efficient screening experience. For participants in the program, there is no need to remove shoes, 3-1-1 liquids, laptops can say in their cases, and light outerwear and belts can remain on.
