AAA and the Transportation Security Administration are helping low-risk travelers get through airport security screening more quickly.

TSA pre-check will be at AAA in Utica all week. Pre-check allows passengers to keep their shoes, belt and jackets on, with their laptop in its case and compliant liquids in their bag. The cost is $85 and you’re covered for five years.

“We had some people waiting at 8 o’clock this morning,” said Rachel Pier, the New Hartford branch manager for AAA. “It actually started at 9 a.m., so being that they came an hour early is wonderful. So I think throughout the week we will have a very good turnout, so I do highly recommend making those pre-scheduled appointments. You don't have to pre-schedule, you can walk up, but appointments will go first.”

TSA pre-check will be at the AAA office located at 409 Court St. in Utica from 1-5 p.m. Tuesday, and from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1-5 p.m. the rest of the week and Monday. On Tuesday, Aug. 7, they will be there from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
