The RAIC Program

The RAIC (Restricted Area Intendity Card) program is a dual biometric airport identification program for non-passengers requiring access to restricted areas of the airport. The RAIC program includes the cards, and biometric readers within airport terminals and a network infrastructure linking airports to a secure central database. The RAIC program has been fully operational since January 31, 2007.
