HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

People who travel frequently know how long it takes to get through TSA checkpoints. That’s why in 2011 The Transportation Security Administration started its pre-check program.

The pre-check program allows passengers to skip the hassle of going through the extensive security search. Travelers do not have to remove their shoes, jackets, or belts, and they can keep their laptops in their bags.

The Hattiesburg-Laurel Regional Airport does not have the traffic of a larger airport, but it is finding ways to make travel easier for their customers.

“The hassle of going through the screening process is eliminated with the pre-check” said  Tom Heanue, executive director at Hattiesburg-Laurel Regional Airport.

Beginning Dec. 12 through Dec. 16, The airport will offer a temporary application center for TSA’s pre-check program.

The application costs $85 but once approved, the pre-check card can be used at any airport.
