Canberra Airport Master Plan approved

Posted On January 22, 2015

The Hon. Warren Truss MP
Deputy Prime Minister of Australia
Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development Warren Truss has approved Canberra Airport’s 2014 Master Plan, setting out the airport’s strategic direction for the next 20 years.

The Master Plan proposes to capitalise on the new passenger terminal at Canberra Airport by targeting the long-awaited commencement of flights to international destinations and by low-cost carriers.

The Master Plan also provides for ongoing upgrades to aircraft taxiways and parking aprons and improved road and transport facilities.

“Canberra Airport boasts the nation’s newest passenger terminal and the commencement of international flights as outlined in the 2014 Master Plan will be an important step in promoting the Canberra region as a jewel in the nation’s tourism crown,” Mr Truss said.

“Canberra Airport plays a significant role in the ACT economy, generating jobs, investment and tourism. Ongoing investment in the airport will provide benefits to the local, regional and national economies for many years to come.”

In 2010, Canberra Airport and businesses operating on the airport provided more than 12,000 jobs and directly contributed $1.34 billion (gross regional product) to the ACT economy.

By 2030, it is estimated Canberra Airport will contribute more than $2.4 billion per annum to the economy and provide nearly 21,000 jobs.

“The Australian Government supports measures to both better understand and mitigate the impacts of aircraft noise, and Canberra Airport is encouraged to continue working with the community on this important issue.”

The airport now has 50 business days to make the Plan public.
