During the onsite enrollment at DAB, applicants will be fingerprinted for a background check. The $85 application fee can be paid by credit card, money order, company check or certified/cashier's check. Cash and personal checks are not accepted.

 “We are very excited about having the TSA PreCheck enrollment center,” Jay Cassens, business development director at Daytona Beach International Airport said in a press release. “Last fall, TSA held a two-week enrollment event here and it was very successful, with 1,200 people enrolled.”

Successful applicants will receive a known traveler number (KTN) via U.S. mail within 45 days that is valid for five years. The number also can be added when booking reservations through a participating airline website, phone call to the airline reservation center, or with a travel management company making reservations. 

More than 150 airports, including DAB, have dedicated TSA PreCheck lanes. Twelve airlines participate in the program including Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Hawaiian Airlines, JetBlue Airways, Southwest Airlines, United Airlines and Virgin America.
