Ground Handling Licence to Operate Policy

Newcastle International Airport (NIAL) governs access to the airside airport infrastructure for companies providing airside services, including ground handling by means of a License to Operate (LTO) system. This is to ensure that in so far as is reasonably practicable, appropriate standards of safety, security and compliance are being maintained by all parties across all aspects of the airside operation. This approach is aimed at ensuring that NIAL complies with all aspects of its responsibilities as the aerodrome licence holder and that the NIAL Conditions of Use are complied with by airside Operators. Organisations wishing to undertake airside activities including ground handling should follow the procedures contained with the Ground Handling Licence to Operate Policy.
