An aerodrome is the part of an airport that is used by aircraft. Its design, its safety-related equipment and operations, including aerodrome operators, apron management services and groundhandling operations help ensure the safety of aircraft, as well as other vehicles and persons present. The EU’s comprehensive legal framework on aerodromes is contained in Regulation (EU) No 139/2014.
