The NCAA contacted the Global Elite Group for its aviation security screening service. Global Elite provides in-house airport screening and is a licensed TSA provider of this service through its aviation security management division, Global completed all the necessary screening information in confidence. The company’s agents are all BST (Basic Screening Training) certified. “This is a highly regulated industry and our agents are in complete compliance with these stringent requirements. Our agents perform the walk-through using our own metal detectors and hand-wand equipment at private areas of airports,” McGuire stated.
This service was very important for the athletes as most travelled on charter airlines at locations throughout the country. “Our service was on-standby at over 20 locations and staffed by 5 to 10 screening personnel. Global has offices at 17 airports so getting the screening done, even if it involved traveling was easily accomplished,”
Communications is the key to success in getting all members of the team organized and on their way. Global security personnel handle the details of getting entire groups screened and transported to their waiting flights. Player safety between venues is a concern but so too is handling the fans and keeping them from getting too close. “We coordinate every detail to make sure there isn’t a bottle neck in the screening and transportation process. It is a mad dash for all involved and with all modes of communications available, we worked 24-hours a day during this time to make sure the players got to their next games,” McGuire added.
In addition to private screenings, Global Elite also provides security management services for airlines located in the U.S. and abroad, handling the security protocols for over 28 airlines including United, Virgin Atlantic, British Airways, Lufthansa, Qatar Airways and Emirates. The company is known for its aviation security programs and is always expanding service offerings to compliment the security needs of individuals, companies and high profile travelers.
