TSA program cuts down on security wait time at DIA

DENVER — If you’re traveling this summer, you’ll have the option of moving through security lines at Denver International Airport a little faster — for a fee.

Travelers can come to the Transportation Security Administration’s new application center to sign up for its precheck program.

The program lets you wear your shoes, belt and a light jacket while going through airport security. Other perks include leaving your laptop and small containers of liquids and gels in your carry-on bag. The cost is $85.

You must visit a center to enroll so officials can verify your identity. You can provide fingerprints and show documentation to confirm citizenship or immigration status.

The center is located in the Jeppsen Terminal on the southeast corner of Level 5 near the south TSA checkpoint.
