The American Association of Airport Executives Transportation Security Clearinghouse said it has been selected by Charlotte Douglas International Airport to provide designated aviation channeling services.
This contract award will allow Charlotte Douglas International Airport to benefit from the Clearinghouse´s comprehensive solution for the secure and efficient channeling of applicant data for aviation worker background checks.
The Clearinghouse pioneered aviation channeling in the wake of the September 11th terrorist attacks to help airports comply with new background check requirements for aviation workers. Initially founded as a public-private partnership between the Clearinghouse and TSA, the agency has since authorized two alternate vendors to provide designated aviation channeling services to the nation´s airports. The Clearinghouse is the only provider exclusively dedicated to airports both on a technical level as well as with federal advocacy efforts by leveraging the decades of AAAE security policy staff expertise.
CLT´s Mission is to serve as an economic engine of the Carolinas, facilitating the movement of people and goods, creating jobs and enterprise and sustaining a higher quality of life.
