Program areas at A4A

Known crewmember program (kcm) - a service provided by the Association to the entire industry that permits participating airline crewmembers to pass through security in separate more secure lanes. This access provides additional security by verifying crewmembers against facial pictures directly from a participating company's crew database before they can pass through the lanes. The program was developed in conjunction with the tsa. During 2018, the program continued to expand to smaller airports where the services will be used. The program continues to improve passenger facilitation and has removed in excess of 110 million crewmembers from regular security lanes, increasing the throughput of the general traveling public. The program is growing into more airports and adding additional access points in current locations. The program is currently available to all carriers in the u.s. and is researching the possibility of adding more employee groups to the participation group with the main ...

Industry consortium insurance program this industry related program allows airport fuel consortium participants to participate in an industry level insurance program for both property and liability covering the largest airports in the u.s. The program provides benefits to the industry as a whole as non-member Airlines participate through being a part of the airport consortium. The result of the program is to mitigate risk by spreading it over multiple locations and ultimately drive down the cost of participation and overall coverage. The fees generated by this program are accounted for as unrelated business income on the Association's 990-t.

E-business program - this program encompasses everything from industry standards setting activities to a common database linking manufacturers and Airlines from a repair and maintenance perspective. The standard setting activities provide common practices and efficiencies to help airline industry members in the back end day-to-day operations. In 2013, the program launched the next generation aviation marketplace enhancing functionality for its customer base. The program is self-funded through a separate membership program and the entire program is accounted for as unrelated business income on the Association's 990-t.
