05-11-2016 - TSA Pre-Check Line Expands at Reno-Tahoe International Airport

Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officials have expanded TSA Pre-Check hours at Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RTIA). The Pre-Check security screening line will now be open at all times TSA security is operational.  

TSA Pre-Check is an expedited screening program that allows approved passengers the ability to travel through TSA security checkpoints at more than 150 U.S. airports without having to remove belts, shoes, light jackets, laptop computers and more. Those accepted in the program are subject to an enrollment fee and are required to provide approved identifying documents. The Pre-Check program is available for all passengers at RTIA except those traveling on Volaris.

“We understand that obtaining Pre-Check status hasn’t always afforded travelers in Reno the opportunity to use the Pre-Check line,” said Marily Mora, President and CEO of Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority. “We’re pleased TSA has been able to expand their service to benefit travelers through Reno-Tahoe International whenever the TSA checkpoint is open.”

With the busy summer travel season just around the corner, it is recommended passengers allow 20 minutes to get through the security checkpoint.

Additionally, the company responsible for enrolling frequent travelers in the TSA Pre-Check program is expanding their hours at a new facility inside the airport. Starting May 23, MorphoTrust USA will be open from 8 a.m.-noon and from 1- 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at their modular office space location on the west wall across from Delta Airline ticket counters.

In addition to Pre-Check, MorphoTrust offers other TSA identity programs including the Transportation Worker Identification Credential and the Hazmat Materials Endorsement Threat Assessment Program. Interested travelers who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents should pre-enroll at www.tsa.gov and set up an appointment to visit the enrollment center at Reno-Tahoe International Airport. Walk-ins are also welcome.

Sacramento is the next closest location for TSA program enrollment services.
