For about a dollar a month, you can almost remember what it was like to fly before 9/11.
The Transportation Security Administration has opened an enrollment center for its new Pre-Check program at Salt Lake City International Airport. The program allows enrolled passengers to skip the usual security lines for their own. The long shadow of 9/11 is not entirely absent passengers in the Pre-Check line may still need to let TSA check their hands for signs of suspicious chemicals but beyond that, they get to go through the checkpoint without taking off their lighter coats, belts or shoes or removing their laptops and small liquids and gels from their bags.
Anyone interested in joining the program can now sign up at the Salt Lake airport, in an office located on the upper level of Terminal One. Lorie Dankers, TSA spokeswoman, demonstrated what that process looks like in a mock enrollment Tuesday morning.
