HEBRON, Ky. - The Transportation Security Administration is expanding its pre-screening program, bringing the check to the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport next month.
CVG will be the first airport in Ohio or Kentucky with the pre-screening service.
The program is only for selected frequent fliers or for those who are enrolled in the U.S. Customs and Border Protection's Global Entry program. Those passengers will now be able to move quickly through a designated security checkpoint lane at CVG without having to remove shoes, jackets, belts, laptops and liquids from carry-on baggage.
"CVG welcomes the TSA Pre✓™ program as another benefit for our passengers. This program expedites the screening process for many travelers without compromising safety," said Candace McGraw, Chief Executive Officer at CVG, in a press release.

Participants interested in joining the program can enroll in CBP's Global Entry Program. Global Entry is a CBP program that allows pre-approved, low-risk travelers, expedited entry into the United States. Participation in TSA Pre✓™ and Global Entry involves an online application (20-40 minutes) and an interview with CBP (15 minutes). Individuals may apply at http://www.globalentry.gov . The cost of the application process is approximately $100 dollars and is valid for 5 years.
