Known Crewmember® (KCM) is a new risk-based screening system that enables Transportation Security Administration (TSA) security officers to positively verify the identity and employment status of flight-crew members. The KCM system is available for use by participating airlines’ pilots, and as of October 1, 2012, flight attendants may also be included in the program. The program expedites flight-crew member access to sterile areas of airports, reduces passenger-screening line congestion, enhances security, and makes airport checkpoint screening more efficient for all who depend on air transportation. The KCM proof-of-concept program launched at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport and Miami International Airport August 2011, and then expanded to five additional locations during its evaluation stage—Minneapolis-St. Paul International, Phoenix Sky Harbor International, Boston Logan International, Dulles International in Washington, D.C., and Sea-Tac Airport in Seattle, Wash. In early 2012, the TSA authorized KCM to become a standing program available to US airlines with access points at dozens of airports. The KCM program was developed by Airlines for America (A4A) and the Air Line Pilots Association, Int’l (ALPA), with approval and support of the TSA..
