Center at Yeager to Take Expedited Screening Applications


Federal authorities are opening a temporary center at Yeager Airport to take applications for an expedited screening program.

The program allows U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents to leave on their shoes, belt and light outerwear in airport checkpoint screening lanes. Travelers who enroll in the program also can keep their laptops in cases and compliant liquids and gels in carry-on bags.

The Transportation Security Administration says the temporary application center will be located in Yeager’s terminal.

Applicants must provide documents to confirm their citizenship or immigration status, along with their fingerprints. Applicants can make an appointment and complete their enrollment in-person or they can enroll at the center as a walk-in.
