This enrolment opportunity provides a convenient TSA PreCheck® enrolment option to all United travellers who are coming into, connecting through and leaving Denver. Enrolling takes five minutes or less and most passengers will receive their known traveller number (KTN) within three to five days. The TSA PreCheck® enrolment, provided by IDEMIA costs $78, which covers five years of participation.

“We are incredibly excited to kickoff this pilot with United Airlines,” said Lisa Sullivan, Senior Vice President, Travel and Transport, IDEMIA Identity and Security North America. “This is the first of its kind. IDEMIA collaboration’s with United Airlines continues our joint goal of enrolling more travellers in TSA PreCheck®, and it ties convenience and accessibility together for travellers flying in and out of the Denver International Airport.”

United® MileagePlus® members can use 11,000 of their miles to cover the $78 application fee. Additionally, United Club SM Infinite Cardmembers, United SM Explorer Cardmembers, and United Quest SM Cardmembers can get a statement credit for the application fee once every four years when charged to their United card.

This enrolment opportunity in Denver will be offered to ticketed travellers from 14 August, 2023 through 06 October, 2023 Monday-Friday, 08:00-12:00 and 13:00 – 17:00 local time. Travellers can look for TSA PreCheck® Enrolment Ambassadors, who will be located in Concourse B, between Gates B18 and B20. Travellers will need to bring a government-issued photo ID and proof of citizenship (e.g., passport, birth certificate) or proof of lawful permanent residency. 

TSA PreCheck® offers many benefits for enrolled travellers, including access to dedicated screening lanes at 200+ participating airports nationwide where 99% of TSA PreCheck® passengers wait less than 10 minutes. There is no need to remove shoes, belts, 3-1-1 liquids, or light jackets. Children 13-17 may join enrolled adults at the TSA PreCheck® lanes when traveling on the same reservation and if the TSA PreCheck® indicator appears on the child’s boarding pass. Children 12 and under may accompany an enrolled parent or guardian in the TSA PreCheck lanes without restriction.

“TSA PreCheck® offers significant benefits to those who meet its enrollment standards – less physical contact, fewer items on the conveyor belt and faster screening,” said TSA Federal Security Director for Colorado, Larry Nau. “This benefit is one of the most valuable and affordable travel options that passengers can enroll in because of the convenience it offers. The cost is $78 for five years, which comes to about $15 per year.”

“As part of United’s growth plans, we’re focused on making the travel experience better than ever, and we’re excited for United customers traveling through Denver International Airport to have this opportunity to enroll in TSA PreCheck,” said Jennifer Schwierzke, United’s Vice President of Customer Strategy and Innovation. “The enrollment process is not only quick and efficient but once enrolled, it ensures that travelers have a more seamless experience navigating the airport.”
