Security Measures Scaled Back At Pensacola Int'l Airport

Posted: Updated:
PENSACOLA, Florida -

Pensacola International Airport is on the list of 60 U-S airports that will soon offer limited or scaled back passenger security and screenings.

The TSA will offer a pre-check security program at the airport by the end of the year.

Under the TSA's Pre-Check system, passengers can pre-qualify and avoid certain security measures before getting on a plane, including not having to take off belts or shoes, not having to open laptop computer cases for inspection and being able to carry certain liquids on board.

The program will cut down on wait times at screening areas.

TSA officials will offer the service at 100 U-S airports by early 2014.

Travelers will have to submit fingerprints and be subjected to a criminal background check to qualify for the program.

The pre-check program costs 85 dollars for five years.
