The proliferation of Pre-Check enrollment centers is good for flyers who can more quickly access the expedited screening process, but it’s a bad sign for the country’s air travel infrastructure that is complicating, instead of simplifying and improving, safety procedures.

Utah travelers will soon be able to qualify for expedited security screenings at the Salt Lake City airport.

The Transportation Security Administration announced Tuesday a new enrollment center for the agency’s Pre-Check program at Salt Lake City International Airport’s Terminal 1.

Approved travelers can keep shoes, outwear and belts on, keep laptops in their cases and carry-on approved liquids and gels in bags.

U.S. citizens or permanent residents can apply with the agency to become qualified pre-screened travelers.

Applicants must visit the enrollment center in person to verify their identity, confirm their citizenship and provide fingerprints.

Registering with the program costs $85.

In Utah, participating airlines include Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, JetBlue Airways, Southwest Airlines, United Airlines and US Airways.
