TSA & Screening
The TSA Security Checkpoint generally opens 1.5 hours prior to scheduled departures. We recommend arriving at the airport 60-90 minutes prior to departure depending on if you have bags to check prior to security.

NOTE: A change to REAL ID requirements has occurred. Beginning May 3, 2023, passengers will be required to present a REAL ID compliant drivers license or a valid passport in order to fly domestically. The REAL ID is an upgraded version of the drivers license or identification card that enhances security and identity management. For more information on how to obtain a READ ID and what documentation you will need to present at the DMV, please visit the Wisconsin DOT website here.
Our airport participates in the TSA Pre-Check program to help you get through security faster. Make sure to include your KTN (Known Traveler Number) on your flight reservation. La Crosse Regional Airport is not a TSA Pre-Check Enrollment Center. Visit TSA's website to learn more about how you can enroll.
The La Crosse Regional Airport features a full body image which provides a better customer service experience for those with internal medical devices.
