TSA ADDS ADDITIONAL TSA PRE✓® LANE AT PITTSBURGH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

PITTSBURGH – The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has added an additional TSA Pre✓® lane at Pittsburgh International Airport (PIT), making it easier passengers flying out of PIT to enjoy the program’s benefits. The TSA Pre✓® Program allows travelers in the program to leave on their shoes, light outerwear and belt, keep their laptop in its case and their 3-1-1 compliant liquids/gels bag in a carry-on.
The new Pre✓® lane, located at PIT’s alternate checkpoint, will be open from 4 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. The Pre✓® lane at the main checkpoint will remain open from 4 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.
Travelers who have yet to sign up for Precheck can do so at the co-located application site for TSA Pre✓® and U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) Global Entry Program at PIT. This joint TSA/CBP center offers passengers in the Pittsburgh-area the option to choose a program that best fits their individual travel needs. TSA Pre✓™ and Global Entry provide an improved passenger experience, while enhancing security and increasing system-wide efficiencies.
The joint TSA/CBP application center is located in the landside terminal, ticketing level, just across from the American Airlines ticket counter. From the airport parking lots, follow the overhead and display signs for TSA Pre✓™/Global Entry. The signage will point to a door with a "Department of Homeland Security" seal on it.
The TSA Pre✓® application center is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Global Entry application center is open from 1:15 p.m. to 2:30 pm weekdays, except Wednesdays, when CBP will staff the enrollment center from 1:15 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Walk-in appointments for the Pre✓® application center will be honored on a first come, first served-basis; pre-enrollment at tsa.gov is recommended. Pre-enrollment for Global Entry is required.
To be eligible for this expedited screening program, individuals need to apply. The TSA Pre✓® application program requires a background check, fingerprints, and an application fee of $85 for a five-year membership. Once approved, travelers will receive a Known Traveler Number (KTN) and will have the opportunity to utilize TSA Pre✓® lanes at security checkpoints at more than 200 participating airports on 37 airlines nationwide.
As always, TSA continues to incorporate random and unpredictable security measures throughout the airport and no individual will be guaranteed expedited screening.
Additional program information and how to enroll can be found at TSA.gov.
