Airport Identification Badge Process

Badge Types and Requirements: Glacier Park International Airport issues identification badges to personnel requiring access to restricted areas.  All badges are issued in accordance with TSA and CFR 49 part 1542 regulatory requirements and require training and background check(s) prior to issue.  The badge and associated training are valid for one year and may be renewed 60 days prior to expiration. Due to federal regulation, any badge expired for more than 30 days requires that the individual complete the background check and initial badging process again, and will be treated as a new badge.
