The Sunshine Coast Airport New Runway Project represents the ongoing development of an airport that has been operating and evolving for more than 50 years. As the region continues to grow, the airport must expand to meet the needs of the community and to continue to support the development of the region's economy.

The New Runway Project will deliver a new 2450m x 45m runway fully compliant with regulatory standards, runway end taxiway loops, an expanded apron and terminal facilities, a new air traffic control tower and associated infrastructure.

The project will enable direct flights to more destinations across Australia, Asia and the Western Pacific, enhancing national and global connections. It will generate jobs and economic growth, boost tourism, help export businesses and secure air access to the Sunshine Coast for generations to come.

Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) 

The Queensland State Coordinator General's report delivered on 19 May 2016 has approved the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Sunshine Coast Airport Expansion Project and will deliver major economic and social benefits to the region. 

The Commonwealth Government will now review the report and provide response within 30 days of the report being received.

Sunshine Coast Council will consider the conditions and recommendations contained within the Coordinator General's report.  It is envisaged the new runway will be open and operating in 2020.
