Transportation Security Clearinghouse

The AAAE Transportation Security Clearinghouse is the only Designated Aviation Channeler (DAC) with more than a decade of airport experience. The Clearinghouse is part of AAAE’s constant advocacy efforts on behalf of airports to ensure that airport interests, from the badging office and beyond, are represented at the federal level. That’s why the Clearinghouse remains proud to be the only DAC that answers to airports—not shareholders.

More than three years after other channelers entered the marketplace, the Clearinghouse continues to remain the choice for hundreds of airports across the country.

Why Choose the Clearinghouse?

  • Dedication – The Clearinghouse is one of many parts of AAAE which are all dedicated to advancing airport interests.
  • Innovation – The Clearinghouse has deployed a fully upgraded platform to deliver industry leading features, stability and reliability.
  • Experience– The Clearinghouse pioneered aviation channeling on behalf of airports more than a decade ago. No other DAC possesses our level of understanding of the unique needs of airports and the processes and systems that support the TSA’s aviation worker program.
