March 16, 2021 — AAA retail offices will be busy with hundreds of travelers making appointments for TSA Pre® in light of renewed optimism about traveling in 2021. Destination Analysts recently conducted a survey which found that 84% of those surveyed have at least tentative plans to travel in 2021.

To make it easier for travelers to sign up now for the screening program that offers an expedited process at the airport, AAA is hosting TSA Pre® events.

With a parallel between the vaccine roll out and increased optimism among the traveling public, this is a great time to add this coveted travel credential which lasts for five years and will help many reduce future contact risks at the airport.

WHAT: AAA TSA Pre® events for local travelers planning future vacations.

WHO: Travelers with plans to fly over the next five years can sign up now for the screening program that will offer an expedited process at the airport, minimizing contact and helping to reduce health risks.
