AAA Washington to Host TSA PreCheck® Enrollment Events at its Southcenter, Lynnwood and Spokane Cruise & Travel Stores in May

BELLEVUE, Wash. (April 13, 2023) – AAA Washington will be hosting a TSA PreCheck® enrollment event in collaboration with IDEMIA, a TSA PreCheck authorized enrollment provider. Travelers will be able to enroll at the following AAA stores: 

  • AAA Southcenter – Cruise & Travel (17250 Southcenter Pkwy Suite 112, Tukwila, WA 98188) from May 8 – 12, 2023.  
  • AAA Lynnwood – Cruise & Travel (3000 196th St SW, Lynnwood, WA 98036) from May 15-19, 2023. 
  • AAA Spokane – Cruise & Travel (1314 South Grand Blvd, Spokane, WA 99202) from May 22-26, 2023. 

The program is open to U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals and lawful permanent residents.  

The enrollment process is quick, convenient and even faster when the application is completed online beforehand. The in-person enrollment requires that applicants provide proof of identity, proof of citizenship, fingerprints and a photo. IDEMIA offers TSA PreCheck enrollment for $78 and if approved, travelers get a five-year membership with the program.  

Following the in-person enrollment appointment, most applicants receive their Known Traveler Number (KTN) in about three to five days. The KTN must be added to flight reservations to enjoy TSA PreCheck benefits.   

TSA PreCheck was created in December 2011 as a way to provide low-risk travelers with a smoother experience through airport security. It’s a great option for travelers looking to save time. Enrolled members do not need to remove shoes, laptops, 3-1-1 liquids, belts, or light jackets. They also access TSA PreCheck dedicated screening lanes at over 200 participating U.S. airports nationwide.  

“AAA Washington is constantly looking for new opportunities to best serve our members,” said Michelle Glass, vice president of travel with AAA Washington. “We are excited to partner with IDEMIA to bring TSA Precheck enrollment events to our stores this May. I have been wanting to enroll in TSA Precheck for years, but thought the process was lengthy and complicated. The ease and convenience of these popup events has provided me with the motivation to finally enroll.”  

If you are unable to make the AAA Washington enrollment event, but are still interested in enrolling in TSA PreCheck, please complete the application online and schedule an appointment at one of the 560+ enrollment centers nationwide.
