3/17/20 – Notice to KCM Participating Airlines and Crewmembers

KCM Participating Airline AOSCs,

Due to the rapid changes caused by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the Transportation Security Administration (TSA)  is directing Federal Security Directors to implement measures to maintain continuity of business. These measures could include some changes to the operation of Known Crewmember Program (KCM) access point locations. Crewmembers should expect periodic closures of KCM access points without notice. If KCM access points are closed, the TSA will accommodate crewmembers at TSA PreCheck locations where available or at standard passenger screening lanes. The TSA is taking measured steps and following CDC recommended guidance to preserve the health and safety of Transportation Security Officers (TSOs), airline/airport employees and the traveling public during this unprecedented time.
