SECURITY

Jack Edwards National Airport has implemented a security plan and system based on recommendations by TSA. Our security system exists to reduce the security risks and vulnerabilities associated with General Aviation operations and future air carrier operations.

Secure fencing with electronic gates, accessible only by security card clearance, are monitored by security cameras. These access areas are monitored and operated on site and remotely.

The responsibilities of JKA’s airport operations office is to monitor the functioning of the system and ensure that it runs smoothly. They also monitor, process and approve security access of every authorized individual at JKA. It is their job to obtain information needed and maintain records on all current and former employees and all individuals given access to any restricted area at JKA.

Applications must be returned for processing in the airport operations office on the second floor of the Airport Administration Building at JKA. The application screening and the classification is completed and designated by the Airport Authority. There is a $20.00 fee for new applications, $10.00 annual renewal fee and a $10.00 fee for lost, damaged or stolen cards.

Foreign Trade Zone

Since the City of Mobile has applied to reorganize the FTZ project under the Alternative Site-Management Framework, FTZ designation for any particular company’s site now involves a 30-day formal process, creating a great deal of flexibility for economic development opportunities. (This process is less time-consuming than the process of obtaining approval for FTZ activation by the local office of U.S. Customs & Border Protection. The two processes can be conducted concurrently.)

EXISTING FACILITIES

  • 6,692 runway with full ILS
