Stage 1 Newcastle Airport expansion
Newcastle Airport’s $14.5 million terminal expansion project reached a milestone on February 24 with Stage 1 being completed. Minister for Planning and Environment and Minister for Women, Pru Goward marked the occasion with a ceremonial cutting of the ribbon. It’s the beginning of a new phase for Newcastle, opening opportunities for future routes to Adelaide, Perth, and Cairns as well as international services to New Zealand and South East Asia. The expansion will also provide local jobs and new possibilities for the region.
Stage 1 was completed on schedule and comprises a 2,600 sqm extension to the existing terminal building, a new arrivals hall, and a dedicated area for permanent customs, immigration, and quarantine facilities, in readiness for potential future international services. With this stage completed Newcastle Airport is now able to discuss future direct international services to and from Newcastle without infrastructure being a barrier.
Stage 2 of the redevelopment has commenced and involves a full refurbishment of the existing terminal which will become dedicated to check-in and an expansive departure lounge.
