Daytona Beach, FL - Your chance to sign up for the TSA PreCheck program is returning to Daytona Beach International Airport.
The enrollment event begins on December 6 and will carry through to December 10, between 9 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the baggage claim area. This program allows travelers to keep on their shoes, light jackets and belts during security screenings, and offers them the opportunity to leave laptops and compliant liquids in carry-on bags.
"While security lines at DAB are traditionally very fast, TSA PreCheck makes the process that much easier, especially for the return flight back to DAB,” said Joanne Magley, the airport’s marketing & customer experience director.
The application fee is $85 and can be paid by credit card, money order, company check or certified/cashier's check. Cash and personal checks will not be accepted. During the actual enrollment process, applicants will be fingerprinted for a background check. Applicants can also pre-enroll online through IdenToGo.com. During the online process, applicants should enter “Daytona Beach, FL” as the location and choose Daytona Beach International Airport.
In order to complete the process, applicants must bring proof of identity and U.S. citizen documentation, such as a U.S. passport or a birth certificate and a driver’s license. A full list of specific documents can be found online (here).
Those who are accepted into the program will receive a Known Traveler Number—or KTN—through the US mail within 45 days. KTNs are valid for five years. Once you receive your KTN, the number can be placed in the “known traveler number” field when booking a flight reservation.
The KTN also can be added when booking reservations through a participating airline website, phone call to the airline reservation center, or with a travel management company making reservations.
More than 200 airports participate in the TSA PreCheck program, including Daytona, along with 81 airlines. That includes American Airlines and Delta Air Lines, both of which run daily service to and from Daytona Beach.
