On-Airport Access for Contractors

For projects that will span longer than a week please see our Airport Security Badge process.

Hangar owners/private developments are responsible to escort their contractors and subs. Airport staff are not available for private escorts.

Infrequent access for other agencies (i.e. Fort Collins-Loveland Water & Sanitation District) you will need to schedule an escort if you do not have a badge or need access to areas not covered by AOA badge access regardless if the work is for utilities, surveys, or project as the Airport is TSA controlled.

We require two business day’s notice, please call 970-962-2853

Please come to the front desk of Airport Administration at 4900 Earhart Road, Loveland, CO 80538 at the time of your appointment. Up to 9 individuals may be escorted. Please note, escorts are limited for surveys or utilities access/work.
