Des Moines airport to speed security for military

DES MOINES (AP) — Des Moines airport soon will allow speedier security screening for military men and women, including members of the Iowa National Guard.

The change will be effective Dec. 20, making it easier for military people to use the airport on official business trips and leisure travel.

The Des Moines airport will be the only Iowa airport to offer Transportation Security Administration Precheck benefits to U.S. armed forces members.

TSA Precheck is open to frequent fliers and certain other passengers who undergo risk assessments before their arrivals at airports. Military members who participate in the program won’t be required to wear their uniforms.
