Wagga Wagga Airport is set to undergo a major expansion to enhance facilities and accommodate the city’s growing aviation needs. The $17.2 million project will see upgrades to the existing terminal building, construction of a new state-of-the-art aviation rescue and firefighting facility, and expansion of the taxiway and aircraft parking areas.
The expansion project has been in the works for several years and is a response to the increasing demand for air travel in the Riverina region. According to Wagga Wagga City Council, the airport has experienced a significant growth in passenger numbers over the past few years and the expansion will help to meet future demand.
The terminal building will be expanded to offer more seating areas, additional check-in counters, and improved security screening facilities. The new aviation rescue and firefighting facility will be equipped with the latest technology and equipment to ensure the safety of passengers and crew.
The expansion of the taxiway and aircraft parking areas will allow the airport to accommodate larger aircraft such as the Boeing 737 and Airbus A320. This will attract more airlines to operate from Wagga Wagga Airport and open up new destinations for travellers.
Wagga Wagga Airport CEO, Alan McDonnell, said the expansion project will take the airport to the next level and provide a better experience for travellers. “The expansion will not only improve the airport’s capacity and efficiency, but also enhance the overall passenger experience,” he said.
The project is expected to create up to 55 jobs during the construction phase and will have a significant impact on the local economy. The expansion is part of the Wagga Wagga City Council’s broader plan to grow the Riverina region and enhance its connectivity to major Australian cities.
The project is currently in its design phase and construction is set to commence in early 2022, with completion expected in mid-2023. The airport will remain open during the construction phase, with minimal disruption to passengers and airlines.
In conclusion, the expansion of Wagga Wagga Airport is an exciting development for the Riverina region, providing a much-needed boost to the aviation infrastructure and the local economy. The project will make the airport more efficient, safer, and offer a better experience for travellers, and also help to attract more airlines and destinations to the region.
