Effective Monday, May 3rd, all Willow Run badging-related matters will be handled by the Security Credentials Office at Detroit Metropolitan Airport. Please review the entire website as processes, forms and procedures may have changed.
Overview of Badging Process
Willow Run Airport provides a safe, secure environment for its tenants and users. The airport secured area is fully surrounded by barbed wire fence, up to 10' in height, and includes automated access control gates and CCTV monitoring.
A Willow Run Airport access control ID badge is required of all employees, tenants, and contractors requiring access to the secured area. You must have permission from your employer, leaseholder, hiring tenant, or the Airport to obtain such a badge
Once the application is submitted, individuals are required to attend a one hour training course on Airport Security and Ramp Driver's Safety Training and pass a short test. Two pieces of identification are required for badge issuance, one of which must be a government or school issued photo ID.
There is a $20 badge processing fee for new badges. Airport employee ID badges will be billed to their respective employers on a monthly basis.
Willow Run Airport Badges will be processed and issued at the DTW Security Credentials Office located in the Public Safety Headquarters Building 610, 31399 East Service Drive, Detroit MI 48242. For directions to the office, see the map below.
