    (HSIA) Traffic Directives

  • HSIA TRAFFIC DIRECTIVES

    THIS VERSION: November 2016

    APPLICANTS FOR AIRSIDE VEHICLE OPERATOR’S PERMITS: INFORMATION

    These directives provide the approved protocols for the operation of vehicles and conduct of persons on

    the airfield at Halifax Stanfield International Airport (HSIA). They also serve as the foundation for obtaining

    the basic knowledge required for training and examination to obtain an airside vehicle operator permit

    (AVOP), rather than as a self-study guide. Persons requiring an AVOP, must receive supplementary training

    and interpretation of these directives from their employer or, where an agreement has been put in place,

    a third party trainer of the Halifax International Airport Authority (HIAA).

    When an airport employee requires an AVOP, it is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that their

    employee receives the requisite practical training and airport orientation as this is an essential component

    for obtaining an AVOP.

    Applicants may drive airside for training, provided that - at all times – they are under the direct control of

    a valid and qualified AVOP holder.

    IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR AIRPORT EMPLOYERS & EMPLOYEES

    The Halifax Stanfield International Airport Traffic Directives (HSIATDs) contain protocols that are also

    applicable to pedestrian traffic. It is the responsibility of employers to ensure that their employees and

    contracted personnel are made aware of such protocols e.g. smoking airside.

    These directives are a living document and will be updated, amended or otherwise changed as

    appropriate. The most recent version will always be the valid reference document.

    Under the direction of the HIAA Manager, Security – this document will be maintained by the AVOP

    Administrator.
