Guidelines for news crews

Sydney Airport is responsible for the operation of the T1 International, T2 and T3 Domestic terminals.

We have a close, daily working relationship with news crews and journalists and request that media adhere to these guidelines when visiting Sydney Airport:

  • Media must comply with requests from airport or airline staff and avoid impeding passengers or visitors in the terminals.

  • News crews and journalists must provide notice prior to coming to the airport.

  • You can do this by emailing or calling the on-call media line on 0437 033 479.

  • No filming or photography is permitted at security screening points.

  • News crews and non-travelling journalists are not permitted in airside locations of the terminals (i.e. beyond security) without prior permission.

  • Requests to film check-in counters, airline branding and interview staff or passengers should be made in the first instance to the relevant airline. If the airline’s consent is not obtained, permission from Sydney Airport to film will not be granted.
