Busselton Airport Terminal Expansion
Project Status: Completed
Passengers at Busselton Airport are enjoying greater security and comfort thanks to the $1.44 million terminal expansion project. The project has been a collaborative effort made possible by $516,300 from the State Government's Regional Airport Development Scheme, jointly funded by Royalties for Regions and Department of Transport, as well as $500,000 from the Australian Government's Federal Community Development Grant Scheme, with the City of Busselton contributing the remaining funds.
The project, which commenced in July 2014 and was completed in December 2014, has increased the airport's efficiency, operational capacity and passenger comfort. Improvements include a new check-in area, new security screening point, a new café and a refurbished 90 seat departure lounge.
Aviation plays a vital role in supporting economic growth and development by improving transport and accessibility into Busselton, contributing to the long term viability of the entire South West region.
