6.03.22 – REAL ID Deadline is May 3, 2023

Friday, June 3, 2022

Beginning May 3, 2023, if you plan to use your state-issued ID or driver’s license to enter KCM® or TSA checkpoints, it must be REAL ID-compliant.

REAL ID-compliant cards will have of one of the following markings on the upper top portion of the card. If the card does not have one of these markings, it is not REAL ID-compliant and won’t be accepted as proof of identity in order to board commercial aircraft.

        

Known Crewmember® (KCM) Identification Requirements:

  • If the crewmember is wearing a uniform, the crewmember must present a KCM® barcode card and a non-expired:
    • Government-issued photo ID; and
    • Aircraft operator-issued crewmember photo ID or National Air Transport Association ID.
  • If the crewmember is not wearing a uniform, the crewmember must present a KCM® barcode card and a non-expired:
    • Government-issued photo ID;
    • Aircraft operator-issued crewmember photo ID or National Air Transport Association ID; and
    • Third form of identification, either:
      • A valid FAA Airman’s Certificate;
      • A valid FAA Flight Attendant Certificate of Proficiency; or
      • A second non-expired government-issued photo ID.

Please remember that KCM® usage for personal international travel is strictly prohibited. If any portion of your travel contains an international leg, the entire itinerary is considered international and therefore you cannot use a KCM® portal.
