TSA Pre-Check Center At ABIA Run by MorphoTrust

Austin's airport becomes the latest place where travelers can get signed up to be part of the TSA's Pre-Check system to expedite the security screening process. A company called MorphoTrust is running the new enrollment center and Operations Manager Win Noble says signing up and getting your own Known Traveler Number or KTN makes traveling much easier. "Not have to take your shoes off, not have to take your belt off, not have to take your light jacket off, right, so you can conveniently move through that line." Noble says travelers who wish to sing up need to go to TSA.gov and start the application process. Noble says so far two million US travelers have gotten a KTN.  "We are real appreciative, our group MorphoTrust to partner with TSA on this project and offer that convenience and added safety." Noble says the KTN costs $85 and is good for five years.
