On-Site TSA PreCheck enrollment initiative launches at Portland International Airport for ticketed travelers

Portland, OR, Jan. 31, 2023 — IDEMIA and Portland International Airport (PDX) announced today that IDEMIA’s new TSA PreCheck enrollment initiative for ticketed travelers is now live.

Ticketed travelers flying out of PDX can enroll in TSA PreCheck with no need for an appointment. It takes five minutes or less, and most travelers receive their Known Traveler Number (KTN) within three to five days. IDEMIA also provides traditional TSA PreCheck enrollments, by appointment, at more than 550 locations nationwide.

IDEMIA TSA PreCheck Enrollment Ambassadors are stationed just past the North Security Checkpoint, by Gate E2. They are in easy-to-spot uniforms with specially equipped carts to enrolltravelers in TSA PreCheck. This service is available to ticketed travelers only, and offered Monday through Friday from 5 a.m. to 1 p.m. local time. Travelers will need to bring a government issued photo ID and proof of citizenship (e.g., passport, birth certificate) or proof of lawful permanent residency. Since this enrollment is past the security checkpoint, it is only available to ticketed travelers on the day of departure.

TSA PreCheck enrollment is easier than ever and more people can take advantage of a smoother airport security screening process that lets them keep their shoes and belts on and leave their compliant liquids and laptops in their bags. Children 12 and younger may join a parent or guardian who has the TSA PreCheck indicator on their boarding pass in the dedicated lanes. In December, 91 percent of TSA PreCheck passengers waited less than five minutes in line.
