The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has mandated Security Directives for all Part 139 Airports. Under this directive, all individuals having unescorted access to the Airport Operations Area (AOA) will be required to have Airport identification badges. The AOA is defined as all areas within the fenced portion of the airport.
To issue identification badges, the airport must collect information from each individual, perform a security check and train each individual as to their responsibilities. In some cases individuals may be required to pass a fingerprint-based criminal history records check.

Badge Pick-up Schedule - New Badges
You will be contacted when your badge is ready to be picked up. Badges will be available for pick-up Tuesdays through Thursdays between 10:00 AM and 12:00 Noon and 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM. Weekend pick-up can be arranged by appointment only. Applicable badge fees will be due at the time of pick-up.
Badges expire on your birthday typically two years from being issued. You will not receive a reminder notice from Airport Management that the badge is close to expiring. The expiration date is clearly printed on the front of the badge to assist you in being prepared to arrange for a replacement. While we do our best to be available at anytime to replace expiring badges, it is best to call our office ahead of time to ensure staff will be on hand to issue a replacement badge. Our office can be contacted at 781-5205 during business hours (8 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday except holidays).
