Once you become an employee, you will need to undergo a fresh, basic DBS check each time your airport ID card is renewed. Most positions within airport staff teams require you to have an airport ID card so regardless of your duties, it is highly likely you will need a CRB check.

How far should I expect a DBS check for airport staff to go?

Your role won’t involve unsupervised contact with the public so the DBS check won’t search any deeper than unspent criminal convictions and conditional cautions. The purpose of the check is purely to ensure the airport remains a safe and secure environment.
