Faster lines at BGM checkpoint.

Going through the security checkpoint at the Greater Binghamton Airport just got easier! TSA Precheck is now available to over 30% of our passengers daily. 

Since the start of the TSA Precheck , BGM has seen record numbers of passengers qualifying for the Precheck option. Currently this option at BGM means that the traveler does not have to remove their shoes or light jackets. It is still required to have your liquids checked and laptop removed from your bags, but the shoes can stay on!!!

It is reported that due to the high number of frequent flyers that travel through BGM we are seeing numbers as high as 50% qualifying for Precheck on some days.

What does this mean for those traveling through BGM? This means the lines at the TSA checkpoint will move faster and allow you time to relax before your flight.

We  suggest that you do not remove your coat or shoes until you get up to the TSA agent. Once they scan your boarding pass they will inform you if you need to do so.  Currently the US Airways boarding passes will indicate if you qualify for the Precheck and you should know when you leave the ticket counter if you have to remove your shoes or coats. You can always ask your US Airways ticket agent if you qualify before you leave their counter.

We hope that Delta and United will soon be able to display this option on their boarding passes but for now you need to wait until the TSA agent scans your ticket and verifies if you qualified for the Precheck.

This is great news for those traveling through BGM. If you want to register for the Precheck program you can check out the options at TSA.gov
