TSA Opens Pre-Check Enrollment Center In Salisbury

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - Flying may be a little easier for Delmarva travelers.

The TSA recently opened up an pre-check enrollment center in Salisbury, the first on the Eastern Shore. Travelers who sign up will be able to leave on their shoes and belts and keep their laptop in its case at an airport.

Anyone who goes through this process will have a background check, which does include fingerprints.

"It really expedites the screening," said spokesperson Lisa Farbstein. "I heard one passenger say it made flying fun again. For passengers, it's a huge convenience. For TSA's perspective, it is a great enhancement on security."

It will be located at the Tri-County Multi-Purpose Center in Salisbury.

The first TSA pre-check centers opened last December with 115 airports accepting pre-checks. The Salisbury Airport is not one of them, as Farbstein says this center is designed to get local residents through larger, more cluttered airports faster.
