Airport Badging Office

Hundreds of GFK security badges are issued each year, providing secure access for employees of airport service providers. Our badging office fingerprints applicants and submits those prints to the FBI for criminal history checks, which are required before employees are allowed to work in the secured or sterile areas. Upon notification of clearance, applicants can then be issued their appropriate security badge. The badging office also collects data to be sent to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to be approved for any airport issued badge.Operations Specialist

Badges are issued by the Airport Authority Operations Specialists who are located on the north end of Airport Drive in the Airport Rescue and Fire Fighting Building. Appointments are required for applying for badges. Call Airport Operations to make your appointment (701)795-6984.
