To gain access to Aalborg Airport’s restricted area, you must either have a temporary ID card or a permanent ID card. The temporary ID card is issued and is only valid on the relevant day of your visit to the airport. To be issued a temporary ID card – also called a guest card – you must contact the airport for further information.

To gain permanent access to the airport’s restricted area, you must apply for an ID card via a declaration of consent, which you will find below. Permanent ID cards and car passes can only be issued if you have an official errand at Aalborg Airport.

The declaration of consent must be filled out by the one/ones who need the permanent ID card and car pass.

We would also like a person from the associated company to be the card manager, which is someone we can contact when the airport is to make an audit of the company – hence the background check of the ID card holders from the company. On the declaration of consent the card manager must fill in relevant information.

The procedure for applying for a permanent ID card to Aalborg Airport will then be as following for the applicants:

To gain access to AAL, you must first of all apply for an ID card via the declaration of consent, which is completed and sent ( or delivered to our Cargo department, where a photo will be taken, either when submitting the declaration of consent or upon physical collection of the card.

The declaration of consent will then be sent of for approval by the police and at the same time, you will be registered in our e-learning system, where you will receive a link to the email you wrote on the declaration of consent.

There will be two courses: A safety course and a security course. When both courses have been passed (with at least 80% correct) through a short test, and when the approval has come back from the police, you are ready to be issued your ID card.
