Why the Airport needs to expand
As one of the fastest growing Airports in Australia, we have a responsibility to our community in helping to attract more business, drive tourism and employment and most importantly connecting family, friends and colleagues domestically and internationally.
Protecting our Environment
As Australia’s first carbon neutral airport, we are a responsible Airport operator and we will not compromise on our commitment to protecting and enhancing the environment, both now and into the future.
We have developed this online resource to keep our community up to date on Airport developments. From residents to local businesses, tourism bodies and aviation partners, we appreciate the community has an interest in what happens at the Airport.
Sunshine Coast Airport is the gateway to the beautiful Sunshine Coast region, providing opportunities for tourism, business and jobs growth. As our region continues to mature and attract more visitors, so too must we ensure our Airport provides the right mix of facilities, experiences and connections to support sustainable growth.
Over the next ten years, we will responsibly diversify our aviation and ancillary offerings, transforming the Sunshine Coast Airport into a vibrant place that uniquely reflects the Sunshine Coast.
An expanded Sunshine Coast Airport will provide more ways to explore Australia and the world, drive sustainable tourism growth and deliver new employment and business opportunities while enhancing our enviable coastal lifestyle.
We are unrelenting in our focus on safety. The welfare of our passengers, customers, staff, tenants, neighbours and visitors is always our number one priority
We are focused on supporting our visitors and creating more frequent connections for our community to do business and visit family and friends nationally and overseas
Our expanded facilities will spur tourism growth, connect businesses and create new opportunities for Sunshine Coast agribusinesses and producers to share their products with the world
We are Australia’s first carbon neutral airport. We will continue to work to find innovative ways to protect and enhance our local environment
We will work collaboratively with our local community to ensure our facilities and services meet their needs and reflect our region’s unique character
Perfectly positioned in the heart of the region, Sunshine Coast Airport will soon celebrate our status as the 2nd most domestically connected airport in Queensland* with direct flights between 13 destinations around Australia and New Zealand.
Our increasing connections mean an increase in passengers through our airport terminal. The terminal expansion project will provide improved customer experiences for everyone who passes through our terminal.
The Sunshine Coast Airport will be a world-class airport and a catalyst for economic growth in the region, becoming a preferred choice for passengers, airlines and business. The Airport will provide new employment, business, industrial and tourism opportunities for the entire Sunshine Coast and broader region.
Sunshine Coast Airport opens up the region to Australia and the world.
