Security services are expanded to cover more sports teams going from game to game

Aircraft security services from Global Elite Group is in full swing to meet the travel demands of athletes and staff in professional and amateur competitive sports leagues. The TSA requires security services be provided for all passengers prior to boarding a commercial or charter aircraft for travel. Global Elite Group has been providing private security services to passengers and airlines since 2010 and is one of the leading national providers of this service under the TSA. “The aircraft security program for VIPs, celebrities and athletes has been expanded in the last year as demand for this service grows,” stated William McGuire, President and CEO of the New York-based company.

Global Elite Group provides the most advanced technology that is convenient for reviewing high volumes of passengers. “Our services are performed by agents who are highly experienced and trained in this segment of aviation security management. We also use state-of-the-art technology that is conducive to getting passengers on their way. Because equipment is also portable, meeting the passenger where and when they need to travel fulfills a growing demand,” explained Bryan Davis, Director of Sales and Marketing. This service according to Davis is very important for athletes who need to travel immediately after a game and for those who need to get to their next location for another competition. GEG also provides the charter aircraft services for the teams during the college March Madness Basketball Tournament.

Over the last several months GEG has been performing private security services for athletes from all over the country. The company performed these services for 400 plus passengers during the college football national championship in early January, doing so in only a few hours. “This can be a last minute service and is one where there is an immediate need and that need has to be met,” stated Davis. GEG provided the security services to several charter airlines contracted with for transporting the athletes and support staff. “This is a small niche industry where our security personnel need to be on call and get to a location to meet the travel requirements of a group or individual,” Davis said.

The service provided by GEG covers all details of getting entire groups to their final destination through required security reviews, handling crowds and all other security or coordination issues that may arise to avoid bottlenecks.
