To be eligible for an ADA, individuals must have a genuine business need to access airside. Applicants must be able to provide the following information to Melbourne Airport upon request:
- What their duties will be on airside
- Who the work is for
- How often they will drive airside
- Which locations on airside they will require access to
This information is required to assist Melbourne Airport in determining if there is a valid need to hold an ADA licence (as is required by legislation).
