Badging & Security
The Badge and ID Office is responsible for issuing airport Security Identification Media (badges) to employees who work at Charleston International Airport. Individuals who work and require unescorted access to the SIDA and secure areas of the airport must possess an airport issued CHS security badge. A locked after-hours badge drop-off box is available outside the Badging and Security Office. Please only place returned badges in the box as any paperwork left will not be accepted. Any badges returned after hours will be acknowledged via email on the next business day.
