In accordance with the Airports Act 1996 and in consultation with the community and key airport stakeholders, the Canberra Airport 2014 Master Plan presents the vision for the Canberra Airport for the next 20 years.
The Master Plan presents the planning for the Canberra Airport becoming:
- internationally connected
- a key hub for national air, rail and road transport
- a major contributor to economic growth
- a valued asset to the local community
Managing Director Stephen Byron said, “Almost 17 years ago, we set out with a vision to create the best small airport in the world. Our previous master plans in 1999, 2005 and 2009 outlined the approach needed to achieve that and we have invested heavily in delivering a national infrastructure asset of which the Canberra Region community can be justly proud. How this will benefit the 900,000 people living in the Capital Region cannot be underestimated and is not yet widely comprehended. International flights are the main thrust of our efforts to drive aviation growth and optimise the asset. It is in Australia’s national interest that our Capital City is directly connected with Asia.”
We are passionate about opening doors for business in Canberra and the Region. To find out more about our focus to 2020, download the Canberra Airport “Your Airport, Your Opportunity” fact sheet.
