The objective of this policy document is to help media practitioners understand how to operate at the Piarco and A.N.R. Robinson International Airports without negatively affecting the security, safety and flow of airport operations.
The security and privacy of our customers is of paramount importance. To ensure a safe and pleasant experience for anyone wishing to film at the airport, certain guidelines must be followed.
A written request for permission must be sent to the Operations Department before shooting any area of the airport including the carparks, outside the terminal building, or other areas landside or airside. It is at the discretion of the Deputy General Manager of Operations, that permission would be granted. According to the location of the filming, the media house may also need permission from an airline, concessionaire or government agency.
Commercial Filming attracts a fee of TT$1500 per day.
The guidelines below must always be followed:-
- At all times, display official media photo ID
- Do not interrupt airport or airline operations
- Do not block emergency exits
- Do not block ticket counters, passenger check in or security checkpoints
