Boston Red Sox and IDEMIA Bring TSA Pre-check to Fans

IDEMIA and the Boston Red Sox have teamed up to bring IDEMIA’s IdentoGO® enrollment centers to Red Sox home games. IDEMIA, which offers TSA Pre✓® enrollment, will have enrollment agents at Red Sox home games starting at the beginning of the 2019 season.

IDEMIA’s centers offer enrollment for TSA Pre✓, a program that allows travelers to enjoy a fast and efficient screening experience at U.S. airports. Once approved for TSA Pre✓, travelers do not need to remove their shoes, liquids, laptops, belts and jackets as they go through security. There are more than 450 TSA Pre✓ lanes at over 200 U.S. airports. The cost of enrollment in the program is $85 and is good for five years.

As the first Major League Baseball team to collaborate with IDEMIA, the agreement allows fans with TSA Pre✓ to access Fenway Park via an IDEMIA Fast Pass™ lane. The lanes are exclusively for IDEMIA customers and is not a TSA Pre✓ security line.

“We are excited to work with IDEMIA to bring the enrollment process for TSA Pre✓ to Red Sox fans,” said Red Sox Executive Vice President 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 Pre✓ 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 Pre✓ enrollment has been a primary focus for us in the last year,” said Charles R. Carroll, Senior Vice President, IDEMIA Identity & 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 Pre✓ at a home game or is already enrolled in the TSA Pre✓.”
