Oakland, CA - (February 26, 2018):  Starting today, Oakland International Airport is inviting passengers to enroll on-site in the popular TSA Pre® expedited screening program. The temporary enrollment event returns to Oakland this morning at 8 AM, ending at 5 PM on March 9, 2018. The event follows positive customer response to similar enrollment events over the past year.

Event:            Oakland International Airport TSA Pre✓® Local Enrollment Event

Date:              February 26th – March 9th, 2018 (Closed Saturday & Sunday)

Time:             Weekdays, 8 AM to 5 PM

Location:      Oakland International Airport, Terminal 2, Pre-security Ticketing Lobby

TSA Pre® has more than 450 lanes at over 180 U.S. airports. Oakland International Airport is hosting its event in the Terminal 2 ticketing lobby, adjacent to the TSA screening area.

“OAK is seeing its highest number of passengers in ten years, and will likely set a new record for passenger traffic next year.  With so many new destinations domestically and abroad, it is great timing to bring the TSA Pre® Enrollment center back to Oakland,” said Bryant L. Francis, Director of Aviation at the Port of Oakland, which operates Oakland International Airport. “We regularly hear from our customers about how much they appreciate the convenience of flying OAK, and expedited screening helps make Oakland an even easier choice.”

The event is ideal for ticketed customers already planning to be in the Airport during the two weeks of the event, who may find it worthwhile to make an appointment. Applications are also available to others who simply prefer the convenience of OAK. Walk-ins are accepted upon availability.

TSA Pre® is an expedited screening program that enables identified low-risk air travelers to enjoy a smart and more efficient screening experience. For participants in the program, there is no need to remove shoes, 3-1-1 liquids, laptops can say in their cases, and light outerwear and belts can remain on.

Applicants are encouraged to pre-enroll by visiting the enrollment website:


To complete the application process, enrollees will need to bring proof of identity and U.S. citizen documentation (such as a U.S. Passport or a birth certificate with valid driver license).
