Employee Checkpoint Procedure

SFO is facing a busy summer travel period. In order to help with security line wait times, all staff should be aware of the following checkpoint procedures.  

Effective Wednesday, May 1, 2019, all employees who are required to access a Sterile Area through a TSA Screening Checkpoint, except for airline employees on active duty, are also asked to utilize Employee Screening Checkpoints when open, rather than Passenger Screening Checkpoints. 

Additionally, all vendor deliveries entering from the Public Area of the terminals into the Sterile Area must be screened at an Employee Screening Checkpoint during the hours that the designated Employee Screening Checkpoint is open. 

  • To access Terminal 1, Pier B, please use the Passenger Screening Checkpoint at Terminal 1 adjacent to the Southwest Ticket Counters, as there currently is no employee screening checkpoint with access to T1 Pier B.
  • To access Terminal 1, Pier C, please use the Terminal 2 Employee Checkpoint located at Terminal 2 Departures Level behind the Alaska Airlines Ticket Counter and the secure connector to T1 Pier C. The hours of operation of the T2 Employee Checkpoint are 4:30am – 12:00pm daily.
  • To access Terminal 2, please use the Terminal 2 Employee Checkpoint located at Terminal 2 Departures Level behind the Alaska Airlines Ticket Counter. The hours of operation of the T2 Employee Checkpoint are 4:30am – 12:00pm daily.
