Fresno Yosemite Airport to hold TSA PreCheck enrollment next week

Airport officials are signing people up to get through security faster as the busier travel season is starting.

Fresno Yosemite International Airport is encouraging people to register for TSA PreCheck in anticipation of a busy Summer travel season. 

The big picture: Airport officials are hosting a TSA PreCheck enrollment event from May 15-May 19. While appointments are already booked for Monday and Tuesday, anyone interested in registering can make appointments for the rest of the week. 


  • Anyone interested is asked to start the application online and select an appointment time. 
  • TSA PreCheck allows passengers to keep their shoes, belt and light jackets on as well as keep their laptops in cases and their toiletries in a carry-on as they go through security. 
  • The application fee is $78 dollars and needs to be renewed every five years. 

What we’re watching: Current projections for the Summer travel season expect to have over 31,000 travelers screened through TSA security weekly at Fresno Yosemite International Airport. 

  • Airport officials anticipate the busiest travel days to be Sundays, Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays, and the busiest times at the security checkpoint are 4:30 a.m. to 6 a.m., 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. to midnight. 

What they’re saying: Fresno Director of Aviation Henry Thompson said the airport is excited to bring this enrollment opportunity to travelers and urged people to register to make their Summer travels easier. 

  • “On average, 89 percent of TSA PreCheck-eligible travelers wait five minutes or less to be screened through the security checkpoint,” said Henry Thompson, FAT Director of Aviation. “This statistic alone should motivate travelers to enroll as a Trusted Traveler and streamline their airport travel experience.”
