Darwin Airport: The 20-year Master Plan gets Federal Gov't rubber stamp

By Rahul Raja, December 24 2010

Darwin’s International Airport is expecting that within 20 years, the number of passengers going through the airport will double from the current figures to 4 million. 

To account for this growth in usage, Darwin Airport has released a 2010 Master Plan that has just been approved by Anthony Albanese, the Federal Minister for Transport. 

The Darwin Airport Master Plan is a 20-year blueprint of how the airport will be affected by and manage issues such as aviation growth and the rise of Darwin Airport as an international transit point between Europe, Asia and Australia . 

Chief Executive Officer Ian Kew said the 2010 Darwin International Airport Master Plan was underpinned by about $1 million in technical studies as well as extensive consultation with airport stakeholders, including airlines, government agencies, general aviation operators and community groups.
