Pine Belt travelers encouraged to sign-up for TSA Pre-Enrollment
PINE BELT, MS. - The Hattiesburg-Laurel Regional Airport is hosting a TSA Pre-Enrollment Program for the week of June 12-16, 2017.
All air-travelers of the Pine Belt area are encouraged to use this week as an opportunity to avoid long lines and inconveniences, such as removing shoes, at larger airports.
Tom Heanue, the Executive Director, says “This will probably be our last enrollment center for this area.”
Members of the Hattiesburg-Laurel Regional Airport strive to create a safe and convenient environment for all air-travelers using the local airport. Heanue says “It is a great benefit if you are a person who travels a lot during the year."
He adds, "When you get to some of the larger ones [airports] coming back…you go into a different line, so you do not have to take off your shoes, or your coat. You get a little more expedited."
The enrollment center is open Monday through Friday, from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm.
