Newcastle Airport

The second busiest airport in the state, Newcastle Airport is jointly owned by the City of Newcastle and Port Stephens Council and plays a central role in the region continuing to flourish and achieve its full potential.
On Friday 6th May 2021, The Prime Minister of Australia, The Hon. Scott Morrison announced an investment of $66 million into upgrading Newcastle Airport’s runway, to help connect the rest of the world to the people and businesses of the Hunter, Central Coast and Northern NSW.

In May 2020, the NSW Government named Williamtown as the location for a new Special Activation Precinct (SAP), adjacent to the Airport and RAAF Base Williamtown, known as Astra Aerolab. This is set to ultimately deliver 5,500 new jobs and global connectivity, providing access to world-leading education and learning, remarkable spaces and experiences.
