Atlanta airport offers faster screenings

ATLANTA — Passengers at Atlanta’s main airport can now apply at a second site to join a security program that offers faster screenings.

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport recently opened another site outside its security checkpoint where travelers can apply to join the PreCheck program run by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration.

Those participating are allowed to go through airport security checkpoints without taking off their shoes, light outwear and belts. They can keep their laptops in their cases and liquids in their carry-on bags.

To get into the program, travelers must first apply online and then visit an application center to provide biographical information, provide fingerprints and other identity documents.
