FDX MEC: Known Crewmember Implementation Becomes a Reality at Memphis International Airport
January 10, 2014 - Today, Known Crewmember (KCM) became active at the Memphis International Airport. KCM is an important TSA risk-based security program that allows an alternate method of expedited screening for crewmembers using a real-time database connection to verify employment and background. This frees TSA lanes, giving paying customers better access and shorter wait times while undergoing TSA-mandated screening and freeing up limited TSA assets for the proper screening of travelers. KCM builds upon the fact that airline crewmembers undergo rigorous background screening and the trust placed upon them as aviation professionals.
