Permission to Film / Photograph

Filming /photography at the airport?
Filming at busy international airports provides logistical and security challenges which means that whilst we will be accommodating, sometimes it will simply not be possible to facilitate non-essential filming and photography requests:
  • All filming and photography within the airport requires a permit
  • Requests are considered on individual basis
  • Minimum 1 million Euro Public Liability Insurance is required
  • Unfortunately it is not usually possible to allow student filming and photographing at the airport

In general, a request must be made in advance, at least two (2) working days for news coverage and fourteen (14) working days for commercial filming/photographing prior to desired date. To apply for permission to film or take photographs at Franjo Tuđman Airport you must write an e-mail to one of the addresses below, and supply the following information:
  • Date of filming/photographing
  • Time/duration
  • Company representing (main contact person name and full contact details, including cell phone and e-mail)
  • Crew size/equipment
  • Purpose of filming
  • Areas seeking permission to be filmed/photographed
  • Confirmation that you have obtained 1 million Euros public liability insurance policy
  • Your contact details
  • Invoicing details (name of the company/agency, OIB/International VAT number, address, official representative…)

Please note: Security will remove anyone filming and photographing without this permission.

For security and safety reasons, we do not permit use of camera tracks or cables for cameras and lighting.

Lighting should be battery-powered with a power rating of less than 200 W.
