Paine Field Airport has new badging rules

Paine Field Airport is changing badging procedures to meet federal requirements set at all commercial-use airports. These changes affect all current badge holders needing access to the airport operations area. There are new identification requirements, including fingerprinting for some applicants. Airport businesses and tenants will be contacted to begin the re-badging process. Tenants with expiring badges will be accommodated with an extension until an appointment can be scheduled.

Getting started

Contact your Authorized Signatory and fill out the badge application and other necessary documents in their entirety.

  1. Schedule a new badge appointment once contacted by the airport.
  2. Arrive at the appointment on time with application completed, individual security responsibilities form completed and signed, and required documents. Please print out forms double-sided if possible. Security badge processing normally takes two to seven days to complete. Be prepared to make payment. Cash and checks are not accepted.
  3. Schedule necessary training appointment after completing steps 1-2 and receiving approval from the airport or Authorized Signatory.
