Airport ID Badge Application

The Horry County Department of Airports (HCDA) Communications Center/Badging Office is responsible for the issuance of badges to employees, assigning and maintaining access to security-sensitive areas of the Airport, and issuing vehicle permits.

The Communications Center/Badging Office verifies that badge applicants have undergone and cleared the required security background checks and ensures that badge holders understand the security rules and procedures related to the possession and use of an Airport Badge.

Air carriers and tenants who hold a lease/contract with the Airport are considered participants with the HCDA and do not require sponsorship for badge issuance. Participants who contract with other companies to perform a service, which requires unescorted access to a security-sensitive area may be permitted under the authority/sponsorship of an Airline or Tenant, or Government Agency and must obtain an Airport Photo ID Badge.

Companies that do not have a direct contractual relationship with the Airport, but still require access to the Airport must be sponsored by an Airline, Tenant, or Participant of the HCDA; thus have an identification badge. Government agencies that have jurisdiction at the Airport are not required to have a sponsor. (All Airport Badging / Access Control policies and procedures are under continuous review, and subject to revision; continue to visit this site for updated policies and procedures.)
