IDEMIA rolls out Fast Pass lanes at Fenway Park for TSA Precheck members
IDEMIA and the Boston Red Sox have partnered to bring IDEMIA’s IdentoGO centers for TSA Precheck enrollment to Red Sox home games at Fenway Park. The agreement allows fans with TSA Precheck to access Fenway Park using an IDEMIA Fast Pass lane.
Once approved for TSA Precheck travelers do not need to remove their shoes, liquids, laptops, belts and jackets as they go through security at U.S. airports. There are more than 450 TSA Precheck lanes at over 200 U.S. airports. The program costs $85 to enroll in and is good for five years. IDEMIA notes it has enrollment agents at Red Sox home games.
“We are excited to work with IDEMIA to bring the enrollment process for TSA Precheck to Red Sox fans,” comments Red Sox EVP Troup Parkinson. “As an organization that has employees traveling on a regular basis, we appreciate the kind of convenience this program can bring while maintaining a high level of safety and security. TSA Precheck is a program that anyone who flies should consider, and we are pleased the easy enrollment process will be available at our home games.”
“Finding innovative ways to expand the availability of TSA Precheck enrollment has been a primary focus for us in the last year,” added Charles R. Carroll, SVP at IDEMIA Identity and Security, NA. “We are pleased that the legendary, World Champion Boston Red Sox are the first Major League Baseball team to partner with us. And we are happy to be able to offer IDEMIA Fast Pass lanes into Fenway stadium for anyone who enrolls in TSA Precheck at a home game or is already enrolled in the TSA Precheck.”
