2036 Newcastle Airport Vision

Newcastle Airport Vision 2036 - Delivering the Airport the region deserves

Newcastle Airport released a visionary plan, 2036 Newcastle Airport Vision, on 22 March 2018 to expand the Airport to meet the needs of the local community.

Through the development of the Newcastle Airport Master Plan, the people of the Hunter and Central Coast can now see how their airport will grow over the next 20 years, with a vision that extends to 2076.

The 2036 Newcastle Airport Vision outlines the proposed development to deliver the Airport the region deserves.

Already a great place to live and work, the Greater Hunter region is entering a new and exciting phase of revitalisation that will see it flourish into an increasingly important economic and tourism destination. As a major gateway into the region, Newcastle Airport is central to achieving the region’s growth plans.

As it grows, the Airport is expected to generate more than 3,000 additional jobs and passenger numbers are anticipated to double, possibly even triple current numbers travelling through Newcastle Airport by 2036.

The Master Plan describes the airfield, terminal, landside, ground transport and aviation support facilities needed to cater for these increased numbers, including:

  • terminal transformation with facilities expanded over two levels
  • additional food, beverage and retail businesses
  • international services implemented into the facilities
  • aero-bridges from the upper level
  • major modifications to integrate ground transport and road access
  • creation of a pedestrian plaza
  • additional car parking areas and offerings
  • creation of a ‘campus’ style business precinct.

Supported by the NSW Government and developed in consultation with local, state and federal government stakeholders plus the community, the Master Plan provides a clear direction and capitalises on the role of the Airport in stimulating economic and social prosperity.

Intended to guide the ongoing development of New South Wales’ second busiest airport, the Master Plan supports continued investment in vital infrastructure that provides capacity to support strong regional, national and global connectivity, benefiting both the NSW visitor and knowledge economies.
