Work begins on $14.5m airport expansion

Newcastle airport is moving forward with its expansion with early work having commenced.
There will be two stages to the terminal expansion: Stage 1 which includes the construction of a new arrivals hall with international facilities has started and is due to be completed by early 2015.
Stage 2 includes the complete refurbishment of the existing terminal, new check-in and departures, more retail and food options and space for a more comfortable wait for flights. This stage is expected to be completed late 2015.
The expansion is consistent with the Defenceapproved Newcastle Airport Master Plan and has been made possible by an $11.1 million grant from the NSW State Government,as part of the Hunter Infrastructure Investment Fund (HIIF).
