Could you tell me how many keys circulate in your airport?

Company ABLOY UK

Could you tell me how many keys and badges are currently circulating in your airport?

The Supply chain of an airport is one of the most complex areas to investigate. It is a network of multiple business units potentially including logistic, suppliers, contractors, airlines, airport operators, government agencies and other service providers.

These different parties at some point need access to range of areas at your airport which necessitates the need to exchange badges, keys or identification devices to access and leave restricted or public areas.


Stolen, Misplaced or lost keys, how to deal with that?

Managing all the movement of keys for third party companies can be problematic. If a contractor leaves with their temporary badge or if an employee’s badge is misplaced, lost or stolen, it is the responsibility of the airport managers to anticipate any of these scenarios.

Ultimately, security at an airport is vulnerable if inappropriate measures are not in place.
