- Hobart Airport – Runway extension
In December 2017, Hobart Airport completed its runway extension ahead of schedule. The extension is a huge milestone for Hobart Airport and Tasmania, creating a host of opportunities by enabling larger aircraft to fly direct to Hobart.
- Perth Airport – CAT III Lighting Upgrade
Perth Airport completed a $36 million upgrade of its lighting and landing system in 2018. The upgrade of infrastructure to a Category IIIb (CAT III) aerodrome improves runway visibility during adverse weather. This enables aircraft to land and take off at a lower visibility, reducing delays and diversions to provide greater certainty to airlines, the travelling public, and business and industry, including the resource sector.
