Coastal Carolina Regional Airport To Host TSA PreCheck® Enrollment Event in June
New Bern, N.C. (May 22, 2023) – Coastal Carolina Regional Airport (EWN) will be hosting a TSA PreCheck® enrollment event in collaboration with IDEMIA, a TSA PreCheck authorized enrollment provider.
Travelers will be able to enroll at 210 Terminal Dr. in Room 104 in the Aircraft Fire and Rescue Building from 9 a.m.-noon and 1 p.m.-5 p.m. from June 26 through June 30. The program is open to U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals and lawful permanent residents.
The enrollment process is quick, convenient and even faster when the application is completed online beforehand. The in-person enrollment requires that applicants provide proof of identity, proof of citizenship, fingerprints and a photo. IDEMIA offers TSA PreCheck enrollment for $78 and if approved, travelers get a five-year membership with the program.
Following the in-person enrollment appointment, most applicants receive their Known Traveler Number (KTN) in about three to five days. The KTN number must be added to flight reservations to enjoy TSA PreCheck benefits.
TSA PreCheck was created in December 2011 as a way to provide low-risk travelers with a smoother experience through airport security. It’s a great option for travelers looking to save time. Enrolled members do not need to remove shoes, laptops, 3-1-1 liquids, belts, or light jackets. They also access TSA PreCheck dedicated screening lanes at over 200 participating U.S. airports nationwide.
“We’re pleased to have this TSA PreCheck enrollment event at EWN,” said Airport Director Andrew Shorter. “Once our terminal expansion is complete, we will have TSA PreCheck lines available for our passengers to use to save time and make flying out of EWN even easier.”
If you are unable to make the Coastal Carolina Regional Airport (EWN) enrollment event, but are still interested in enrolling in TSA PreCheck, please complete the application online and schedule an appointment at one of the 550+ enrollment centers nationwide.
