Main Apron Security Requirements
Great Barrier Reef Airport is a security controlled airport. The requirements of the Aviation Transport Security Act and Regulations apply to airside activities.
The airside of the airport is security controlled and therefore a valid Aviation Security Identification Card (ASIC) must be worn at all times by visiting pilots. Further detail on security requirements for your visit can be obtained by contacting the Airport Operations Officer.
The main apron is a Security Restricted Area during the operational period of the airlines. As such security measures including the screening of itinerant aircraft crew and their passengers, and the inspection of items going to the main apron may apply. Pilots are responsible for the close escort of passengers to and from the terminal building, and ensuring separation from screened airline passengers.
