Current projects

Code E runway upgrade

In order to release billions of dollars in economic benefit, the airport’s runway requires an upgrade to Code E status, which will allow it to accommodate long-range, wide-bodied aircraft. 

A Code E civilian runway at Williamtown is a game changer for the region including the generation of 4,410 full time jobs.

Terminal upgrade

On 14 April 2022, the Federal Government announced that Newcastle Airport will receive $55 million in funding to significantly expand and upgrade our international passenger terminal.


Astra Aerolab

Uniquely co-located with RAAF Base Williamtown and Newcastle Airport, Astra Aerolab is Australia’s newest defence and aerospace precinct. A one-of-a-kind place, enhancing Australia’s ability to deliver world class sustainment and manufacturing capability to the Defence sector.

Terminal Forecourt Trial

Newcastle Airport is trialling a new layout to the existing road that runs past the terminal forecourt. The existing fence will be removed, and the drop-off/pick-up lane will extend the full length of the forecourt area. The inside lane adjacent to the fencing will become a drop-off/pick-up lane, while the outside lane will be a transit lane for all vehicles.
