16 January 2015

Formal approval has been granted to Adelaide Airport for its 2014 Master Plan, a document which sets out a programme of investment for expanding aviation and passenger facilities at the site.

Acting Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development Warren Truss said the approved Master Plan outlines Adelaide Airport's strategic direction and intended land uses for the next 20 years.

“Adelaide Airport contributes more than $1.9 billion to the South Australian economy and is the largest employer base in the state,” Mr Truss said.

“It is expanding as an employment base, with the number of direct and indirect jobs supported by the airport set to double to 37,100 by 2034.

“The investment programme recognises the importance of expansion to support a growing airport jobs and customer base, and includes plans to better integrate regional airline services into the main terminal.”

“The airport has also outlined plans to construct a new general aviation terminal.

“The Master Plan makes it clear that Adelaide Airport is committed to continuing to improve its consultative mechanisms and will continue to work closely with all levels of government and the community to ensure the best outcomes for all stakeholders.”

Adelaide Airport now has 50 business days to release its Master Plan to the public.
