Airport Works Plans (AWP)

The AWP process has now moved to an online system and word document applications will no longer be accepted.

To submit an AWP, please log into infoSYD and follow the instructions on the Airport Works Plan tile.

Who needs a AWP?

Any contractor conducting works on Sydney Airport land. This includes companies either directly engaged by Sydney Airport, or engaged by a Tenant/Retailer/Airline/Operator at Sydney Airport. If works are contracted by a Tenant/Retailer/Airline/Operator, they are considered third party works.

An Approved AWP must be posted on a hoarding, stored at the worksite, and/or carried on person by any contractors conducting works. It is a document to demonstrate that the contractor has an established relationship with Sydney Airport to conduct the works, or that the contractor has an established relationship with a Tenant/Retailer/Airline/Operator to conduct the works. The works must comply with the conditions on the AWP, such as scope, hours of work, and location.

Any works being conducted without the contractor being able to present an Approved AWP will be stopped.

What type of works need an AWP?

All works must require an AWP. This also includes deliveries, site inspections, photography, site measure, cleaning and shutdown right up to major construction works.

The planning team need to be consulted, when you are bringing something new into the environment, taking something out, or relocating something. This must be Determined-Approved before an AWP can be released.

If you need any assistance, contact the Sydney Airport Planning Approvals team on +61 2 9667 9080 or plan.approvals@syd.com.au.

Tools of Trade

If a contractor is required to carry tools in and out of the Terminal Sterile areas to complete these works, the Approved AWP will contain a Tools of Trade form. Please make sure the company names on the AWP application match the company names on the back of the ASIC exactly, and that the Tools of Trade box is checked on the AWP application form.

Sydney Airport Facilitator

The AWP application must be reviewed and approved for processing by a designated Sydney Airport Facilitator.

For project related works, this will most likely be the Sydney Airport Project Manager.

For maintenance works, this will be the Sydney Airport Contract Manager.

For works on behalf of a retail tenancy, it will be a member of the Sydney Airport Retail Team.

For works on behalf of a property tenancy, it will be a member of the Sydney Airport Property team.
