Redmond Municipal Airport (RDM) will be hosting a TSA Precheck enrollment event this week. But be prepared for possibly a long wait when you get there.
The event will be held at the Airport Main Terminal Monday-Friday, between 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
The airport posted on Facebook that all the scheduled appointment times have already been filled. Walk-ins will be accepted, but those folks should expect to have to wait for an undetermind amount of time.
The Transportation Security Administration says Precheck is a program designed for identified low-risk air travelers. It allows approved travelers to skip the general security lines. This program lets you keep your shoes, 3-1-1 liquids, laptops, light outerwear, and belts on while you go through security.
Approved travelers can use Precheck for five years before it needs to be renewed.
More than 200 U.S. airports have Precheck, including RDM.
Those who want to sign up will need to bring documentation proving identity and citizenship status, such as a valid driver’s license or U.S. passport. Fingerprinting for a background check will be processed on-site.
The in-person application fee is $78. It can be paid by credit card, money order, company check, or certified/cashier’s check. Cash and personal checks aren’t accepted.
