SLO airport's new terminal will have a better security checkpoint — but will it be fast enough?
Airline passengers looking to get through security at San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport a little faster but missed a chance to register for the initial TSA Precheck programs offered next month will get another chance.
In addition to already filled appointments Oct. 9-12, TSA will be on site at the airport parking lot from Oct. 23 to Nov. 3 to enroll passengers in the precheck plan that allows members to keep on light jackets, shoes and belts during the airport security process. Members also can keep their laptops and compliant liquids in their bag, according to a news release from airport director Kevin Bumen.
The mobile enrollment center will be open from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 5 p.m. from Oct. 23 to Nov. 2. It will be open from 9 a.m. to noon Nov. 3. The center will be closed Oct. 28-29.
To enroll, attendees must bring a government-issued photo ID with proof of U.S. citizenship, and complete a 10-minute fingerprinting process.
Precheck memberships are valid at airports across the country.
