Known Crewmember® Pilot Information
The Known Crewmember® Program is a risk-based screening system that enables the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) security officers to positively verify the identity and employment status of flight-crew members. The program expedites flight-crew member access to sterile areas of airports, reduces passenger-screening and line congestion, enhances security, and makes airport checkpoint screening more efficient for all who depend on air transportation.
Please note: Crewmembers are not eligible for KCM® unless their employer is participating in the program.
Key Program Points:
- 15 seconds normal transit through over 165 KCM®- dedicated access points at more than 75 commercial airports
- NO UNIFORM REQUIRED - Crew members transiting a KCM® access point do not need to be in uniform.
- Use for work or personal travel
- Utilize the KCM® ID Badge to enjoy crewmember discounts at many airports, restaurants and hotels.
- Arriving internationally at Customs - use the Crew Lane
- TSA-approved flight crew ID badge and KCM® barcode issued for expedited access (co-branded for your flight operation)
- No hassle and no stress. Avoid the regular airport security checkpoints lined with thousands of public travelers.
