Known Crewmember While Traveling International

Date: June 13, 2017
Type: AFA Article

As a reminder, crewmembers traveling to an international location as a passenger for personal travel must be screened as a passenger through a passenger-screening checkpoint prior to entering the airport sterile area. Crewmembers may not use the Known Crewmember (KCM) access point for personal travel from the U.S. to any international location.

Crewmembers traveling from the U.S. to international locations on company business may continue to use the KCM access points.  Company business includes; but is not limited to, the following:

  • Flight Operations
  • Training
  • Crew Positioning
  • Deadheading
  • Other Company Business 

Known Crewmember access is a privilege.  If in doubt, use the passenger-screening checkpoint.
