Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI Marshall) and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) today announced the opening of a TSA PreCheck Enrollment Center at the airport. All TSA PreCheck applicants must visit an enrollment center to verify identity, provide fingerprints, and pay the $85 application fee.
TSA PreCheck is a streamlined screening program for low-risk travelers. PreCheck travelers use specially designated security lanes at BWI Marshall and airports across the U.S. For PreCheck passengers, there is no need to remove shoes, laptops, 3-1-1 liquids, belts, or light outerwear during the security checkpoint procedures.
“The TSA PreCheck program is an important customer service initiative, particularly for those who travel frequently,” said Maryland Governor Larry Hogan. “This new application center at BWI Marshall Airport will make enrolling in the program easy for Maryland travelers.” In a May 2016 letter to U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, Governor Hogan requested a TSA PreCheck Enrollment Center to be established at BWI Marshall. The Governor noted that, “a convenient application office located in the airport terminal would increase the number of local PreCheck members.”
The PreCheck Enrollment Center is located on the lower level of BWI Marshall Airport, between Concourse D and the International Terminal. The application center is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
“We continue working with the TSA to provide secure, efficient travel for our customers,” said Ricky Smith, Chief Executive Officer for BWI Marshall Airport. “The PreCheck center will help create a more convenient checkpoint experience for BWI Marshall passengers. Our customers can enjoy the convenience of signing up for PreCheck while they’re here at the airport.”
