Pittsburgh International Airport

Airport Badging

Allegheny County Airport Authority : PIT Airport ID Badge Office Information

The Airport ID Badge office is located on the baggage claim level of the Landside Terminal, near Baggage Claim “P.”

Effective July 27, 2015, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has directed that airports must complete a Criminal History Records Check (CHRC) for all individuals with airport-issued security IDs every two years. This recurrent CHRC requires the re-fingerprinting or re-submittal of fingerprints stored with the Transportation Security Clearinghouse and transmittal of those to the FBI. In most cases, the fingerprint check will be managed through the Badge Office, although for domestic air carriers, the TSA allows the airport to accept, and we will accept, an airline's notification form that they have submitted fingerprints for each individual being rebadged and that those individuals have no disqualifying crimes. 

New Open Office Hours (effective Jan. 2, 2018) for fingerprinting, badge process, and video training are:

Monday :      8 AM - 1 PM
Tuesday :     8 AM - 4 PM
Wednesday: 5:30 AM - 1 PM
Thursday :    8 AM - 4 PM
Friday :         5:30 AM – 1 PM
