Airside Driving Permits

Procedures for Airside Driving Permits (ADP) by companies for people who habitually drive inside the airport grounds' restricted areas.

Service scope

All people who habitually drive inside the airport grounds' restricted areas must have an Airside Driving Permit, hereinafter, ADP.

The ADP is a personal and non-transferable document that identifies the holder, together with their personal identification and their Spanish ID card (DNI).

There are two kinds of ADP, depending on the airport zone in which the holder is authorised to drive:

  • ADP: Permit to drive in all the airport grounds, except the manoeuvring area.
  • ADP M.A.: Permit to drive in all the airport grounds.

All ADP holders must have personal accreditation that allows them access to the apron, a type B or higher driving licence and an aptitude certificate issued by the holder's operating company.

To obtain an ADP, applicants must pass an exam to prove knowledge of the prevailing Apron Safety Rules, as well as other knowledge as determined by the airport management.

Apart from the aforementioned, holders of ADP A.M. must also have: personal accreditation that allows them access to the manoeuvring area and "Basic Training for Driving in Manoeuvring Areas and/or Use of Aeronautical Frequencies”.

Withdrawal of the personal accreditation that allows access to apron shall mean automatic cancellation of the ADP.

Each airport manages their ADPs and these are only valid in the airport where they are issued.

Service applicants

Applications must be made by one sole representative of the airline, assistance or self-assistance agent, airport concession holder or services company installed in the airport, which shall accept responsibility for the accuracy of the data provided.

In the case of drivers who work for several companies, one application must be filed and a new ADP card issued to the driver for each one of the companies.

New and renewed ADP cards may be requested, as well as duplicates due to loss and any other modification of the ADP data.
