AOA permits, including AOA Vehicle Access Permits, Temporary AOA Vehicle Access Permits and AOA Equipment Permits, are the means by which motor vehicles and ground handling equipment are authorized to enter and/or be on the AOA and the SIDA. Vehicles and ground handling equipment entering security gates, commonly referred to as “AOA gates,” must display valid, unexpired AOA permits or be under escort by an agent of the Airport Board, or a representative of the airlines or a tenant responsible for the AOA gate through which the vehicle or ground handling equipment is entering. All vehicles entering through an AOA gate and ground handling equipment being brought into the AOA or SIDA are subject to inspection by security personnel.
The fees for AOA Vehicle Access Permits and Temporary AOA Vehicle Access Permits are listed in the Schedule of Charges, as may be amended from time to time, in the Public Safety Medical Services & Charges section. You may review and/or print the current Schedule of Charges by visiting the Financials page at http://www.dfwairport.com/about/financials/index.php
. You will be expected to pay the fee when the application is presented to the ACO for processing.
To obtain an AOA permit, complete all requested fields on the application, attach a copy of your company’s Acord Certificate of Liability Insurance as proof that your company’s insurance policy meets the Airport Board’s insurance requirements for AOA access, and then take the completed application to an authorized badge sponsor for signature before bringing the application to the ACO.
The following will help you determine which AOA permit application you need to complete:
|1.||Select the Air Operations Area Vehicle Access Permit Application when the following conditions apply:|
| ||a.||Your company is an airline tenant, government agency, Airport concessionaire or the Airport Board; or|
| ||b.||Your company is a contractor or vendor for an airline tenant, government agency, Airport concessionaire or the Airport Board whose contract/agreement expires on the last day of the calendar year (ex. Contract term begins on 05/15/2007 and expires on 12/31/07).|
|2.||Select the Temporary Air Operations Area Vehicle Access Permit Application when the following condition apply:|
| ||a.||Your company is a contractor or vendor for an airline tenant, government agency, Airport concessionaire or the Airport Board whose contract/agreement expires prior to the end of the last day of the calendar year (ex. Contract term begins on 01/01/2007 and expires on 09/30/2007)|
Your company is an airline tenant, government agency, the Airport Board or an Airport Board contractor that has ground handling equipment that will remain on the AOA or SIDA and the ground handling equipment does not traverse through AOA gates after being brought into the AOA or SIDA.
Please make sure you allow two (2) to three (3) business days for application processing and permit issuance. The ACO will contact you via email or telephone when the permits are ready to be picked up.
