Regional Airport Development
As many as 50% of regional airports throughout Australia are operating at a loss.
Holding the responsibility of being the key gateways to Regional Australia, regional airports are pressured to upgrade and develop. With fluctuating activities in the mining and tourism sectors, regional airports are therefore experiencing fluctuating foot traffic. Ageing infrastructure and limited funding is a constant pressure.
There is a need to re-focus and work towards commercialisation of our assets to move towards self-funding and at least become cost neutral.
