The "Known Suppliers of Airport Supplies" concept
In compliance with the requirements of the supervisory authorities, all goods that are destined for the restricted areas of Zurich Airport must be checked before entering these areas by security officers tasked with such duties. This requirement does not apply, however, to so-called "known suppliers of airport supplies" – companies that supply goods to the airport which have shown that they meet certain predefined security requirements.
The concept in brief
- Known suppliers of airport supplies enjoy simplified and more efficient processes when delivering their goods to restricted areas at Zurich Airport.
- Known suppliers of airport supplies are trained and certificated to meet international aviation security standards.
- Any company delivering goods to Zurich Airport can apply for Known Supplier of Airport Supplies certification.
- All such applications require is the completion in full of the Known Supplier Application Form.
