SECURITY IDENTIFICATION AND APPLICATIONS (ASIC/VIC)

Security is synonymous with Safety at Townsville Airport. In accordance with the Aviation Transport Security Act 2004 and associated regulations, Townsville Airport is considered a security controlled airport.

SECURITY IDENTIFICATION

An Aviation Security Identification Card (ASIC) must be held by anyone who requires frequent access to enter secure areas at security controlled airports throughout Australia.

ASIC APPLICATION PROCESS

All ASIC applications (new and renewals) are treated the same. Existing and new applicants must follow the below process:

  1. Applicants must complete an online ASIC application at www.asiconline.com.au
  2. A signatory from the applicant's company will then review andapprove the application.
  3. The applicant will then receive an email to complete the online ASIC 
    Security Induction and Test. Note: the application won't progress until this is completed. 
  4. The application is then submitted to the Department of Home Affairs for review and approval.
  5. When the ASIC is ready for collection applicants will receive a text to book a collection appointment using the online booking website:  https://outlook.office365.com/owa/calendar/TownsvilleAIrport@

    Note: The original documentation used in the ASIC application must be produced at the Townsville Airport Management Centre for verification during the collection appointment. 

SECURITY DEVICES

Proximity Cards and Air Keys are issued to ASIC holders who require access to secure areas at Townsville Airport. A Proximity Card is a blank access card that can be swiped against card readers on terminal doors. Air Keys are remote button keys used to open airside and compound gates (similar to a home garage door key).

These security devices are generally issued to ASIC holders who have not had their ASIC issued through Townsville Airport. Applicants must complete either a Proximity Card Application form or an Air Key application form.

All applicants requiring access to secure areas must complete Townsville Airport’s online Security Induction Test before an access device can be issued.
