TSA Pre-check at Atlanta Airport 7

TSA Pre✓™

Travelers interested in registering for TSA Pre✓™may enroll at the ATL Precheck application site on Concourse A.

TSA Pre✓™is an expedited screening program that allows travelers at security checkpoints to leave on their shoes, light outerwear and belt; keep their laptop in its case; and keep 3-1-1 compliant liquids/gels in a carry-on bag.

The ATL enrollment centers are open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and again from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. The enrollment center located on Concourse A next to Gate A19 is for ticketed and connecting passengers. A second enrollment center is located in the Terminal South ticketing area (pre-security) and is open from 9 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. on Saturdays. A ticket or boarding pass is not necessary to visit this location.

Both centers allow walk-in appointments on a first-come, first-served basis.

TSA Pre✓™ lanes are staffed daily at the following locations:

Location Hours of Operation
Main Checkpoint 5 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Terminal North 5 a.m. to 7 p.m.
International Terminal 6:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Airport Customer Service representatives are available to direct you to the ATL Precheck lanes.

    Always been pre checked and last trip in October TSA ignored it or missed it on my boarding pass and did a full body pat down anyway. I am a 68 year old grandmother always traveling alone. Search was prompted because I had a dime in pocket. When they pull you aside it is humiliating and draws attention to you like did something wrong. I know it is their job but why if pre checked?

    What is the cost of enrolling in TSA Pre-Check in person at either Concourse A (next to Gate A19) or in the Terminal South ticketing area (pre-security)? Is enrollment good for 1 year? 5 years? Thanks.

    TSA Pre-Check subscribers for over 5 years
    Check-in/Bag dropped at North Terminal for 10 am AA flight ATL to DFW, departing from gate T-10 ( actually a short walk from bag drop)
    North Terminal PreCheck CLOSED
    Routed us west all the way to North Terminal Bag Claim then was directed to cross over to South Terminal Bag claim
    Then walk the full length of walkway all the way to AND BEYOND South Terminal General Boarding Checkpoint
    Limited Signage/No explanation/ just rope barricades and occasional staff pointing to keep going
    Walk took us an extra 20+ minutes just to get in a big line at South Terminal TSA Pre-Check
    Ridiculous to expect elders with carry-on to unexpectedly hike well over a mile. I’m guessing there were more than a few missed flights

    Every time I go to the Atlanta airport I always try to find an answer to this question and find out who to complain to and yesterday’s visit was no exception! No one on the airport staff that I have asked can explain to me why the TSA Pre-check line is now ONLY convenient for Delta travelers!!! It has not always been this way and this situation needs to be resolved for all of us who are NOT Delta airlines fans!!!!

    I hope this web page is out of date because I can’t believe that the International terminal of the world’s busiest airport STILL shuts down TSA precheck lines at 5:30PM !!

    I am always going out a night flight, and even if I wanted to get there extra early to get thru TSA while they are still open,
    the AIRLINES don’t open their baggage check-in teller windows until AFTER 5:30 for those international nite flights!

    Atlanta airport’s international terminal TSA Precheck is a pathetic joke. There is no precheck lane; you wait with everyone else. Once you finally get to a TSA employee you’re given a big shiny card that says “precheck”. Then you resume your place in line with everyone else to await having your bags scanned. The ONLY advantage I saw from having precheck in ATL is I didn’t have to remove my shoes, belt, or jacket – thanks to my big shiny card. There was absolutely zero time savings at all. Pathetic.
