PUNTA GORDA, Fla. — The Transportation Safety Administration is continuing its push to get travelers signed up for its expedited screening program, PreCheck.

PreCheck allows pre-screened air travelers to enjoy a simpler airport experience at more than 200 U.S. locations. Travelers can leave their shoes, light outerwear and belt on, and their 3-1-1-compliant liquids and laptop in their bags.

The IdentoGo PreCheck Mobile RV will be coming to Punta Gorda Airport from Monday, Jan.31 through Thursday, Feb. 10, 2022.

The Mobile Enrollment Center will be located in the short-term parking lot across from the Snack Shack on the following dates:

  • Monday, January 31 through Friday, February 4 from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m and 1 p.m. – 5 p.m
  • Monday, February 7 through Wednesday, February 9 from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m and 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.
  • Thursday, February 10, from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.

How it Works: The TSA PreCheck application program allows U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents to directly apply for TSA PreCheck. Once approved, travelers receive a “Known Traveler Number,” which can be added to their airline profile and reservations. This gives them access to TSA PreCheck lanes at select security checkpoints.
