Traveling by plane is going to get a little easier for New Mexicans.

The Transportation Security Administration plans on opening an office in Albuquerque to process applications for the pre-check program.

The program allows travelers to bypass security lines at the airports and go through the screening process without having to take off shoes, belts or jackets, according to a Sunport spokesman.

Applicants have to go through a background check and interview with the TSA.

The new center will be located at 2921 Carlisle NE, Suite 126.

It will be open on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
