(INDIANAPOLIS) - Indianapolis International Airport is one of two airports in the U.S. which will be an enrollment site for an expanded version of the TSA Pre-Check program.

TSA Administrator John Pistole announced Friday that this expansion will allow air travelers, including those who aren't frequent fliers, to be able to get through security screenings more quickly.

Pistole says this is a domestic version of the Custom and Border Protection's Global Entry program. Travelers will be able to go online, submit an application and then go to an enrollment site to provide fingerprints.

The process, which includes a background check, should last two to three weeks. Enrollment in the program will cost travelers 85-dollars for a five-year membership. Upon approval, applicants will get a Known Traveler Number which they can use when booking flights so they are shown as low-risk passengers.

The expansion begins this fall with two enrollment sites at Indianapolis International Airport and Washington Dulles International Airport. Pistole says more enrollment sites will be added as time goes on

Pistole says the expansion of the Pre-Check program allows the TSA to to focus on the travelers they know the least about while adding efficiency and effectiveness to the screening process.
