Gold Coast Airport Completes $86M Airside Upgrade
- 10 Apr 2018
A milestone in the Gold Coast Airport redevelopment has been met, with delivery of a $86 million upgrade involving construction of a new apron and taxiway – which will expand capacity and improve efficiency.
The upgrade includes a 20,000sq m expansion of the apron area to facilitate parking for up to four additional aircraft, which is part of the first stage of Project LIFT.
The taxiway project, called Taxiway Charlie, is separate to Project LIFT and creates a full parallel taxiway to the runway – reducing potential delays by allowing aircraft to reach parking positions more efficiently.
The projects have been completed in time for the busy Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games period and come as the airport continues to experience growth in passenger numbers.
