Invest Sunshine Coast
The Sunshine Coast’s Regional Economic Development Strategy (REDS) is generating opportunities for investors and opening new avenues for business development in infrastructure, targeted high-value industries, supply chain development and commercial, industrial and residential development. One of these major projects is for a major expansion of the Sunshine Coast Airport to enhance its domestic and international links.
The A$347 million airport expansion, due for completion in 2020, will deliver new infrastructure and facilities enabling direct international flight access to the region from a number of destinations in Asia and elsewhere. This will also facilitate new freight capabilities and access to global markets.
The runway project
A new, fully compliant runway of 2,450 metres in length and 45 metres wide to accommodate larger, more fuel-efficient aircraft (ie. B787 and A330-200 aircraft) was opened on 14 June, 2020. It means aircraft can fly longer distances to other parts of Australia and many international destinations. The project also includes expansion of the aircraft apron and improvements to existing passenger terminal facilities.
