Airside Driving

Airport Driving

Airport users who wish to drive airside or operate vehicles and equipment on airside operating areas, taxiways and aprons will require an Authority to Use Airside (AUA), and an Airside Driving Authority (ADA) license.

It is a regulatory requirement that people have the appropriate authority to access airside.
Your authority to access airside may be provided by  Bankstown Airport Limited if you have a legitimate requirement to work airside.
However, in your application you must give a valid/lawful reason to go airside.

As Sydney Metro Airport Bankstown is a security controlled Airport, you will be required to seek an approval to drive airside, and if approval is granted you will need an Airside Authority for Use (AUA) for the vehicle and an Authority to Drive Airside (ADA) for the driver. Vehicles will require full comprehensive insurance, with a cover of 20 million dollars.
