At airports across the country, people can “Travel with Ease” and experience a smoother screening process by enrolling in TSA PreCheck. Eligible travelers do not need to remove shoes, belts, light outerwear, laptops, electronics larger than a cell phone or travel-size liquids from carry-on luggage.
In May 2022, 93% of travelers eligible for TSA PreCheck waited five minutes or less to be screened at airports nationwide. Another benefit of the program is that children 12 and under are eligible for TSA PreCheck screening when traveling with an eligible parent or guardian on the same itinerary.
As an added benefit, TSA PreCheck travelers generally have the least amount of physical contact during the security screening process in the TSA checkpoint. For people who want to put their mind at ease to “Stay Healthy. Stay Secure.” when traveling, they should make plans to enroll in TSA PreCheck while it is available at the airport in Gypsum for a limited time.
An in-person visit to the enrollment center is required to complete the application process. Applicants must bring a current U.S. passport or a driver license and a certified copy of a birth certificate. Fingerprints will be collected during enrollment.
People are strongly encouraged to begin the enrollment process online. Start by visiting www.tsa.gov/precheck and select “Apply Now.” Follow the online prompts, enter the requested information and select “Gypsum, CO Pop-Up: EGE” as the enrollment location.
The enrollment fee is $85, which covers a five-year period. The fee must be paid at the time of enrollment by credit card, money order, company check, or certified/cashier’s check.
To date, more than 11 million people have enrolled in TSA PreCheck. American Airlines, Delta Air Lines and United Airlines, all of which serve EGE, participate in TSA PreCheck, giving local travelers an extra incentive to enroll in the program.
