In June 2020, construction of a new north-west/south-east runway was completed and officially handed over to the Sunshine Coast Airport. Construction of associated infrastructure was completed in early 2021.

Whether you are flying for pleasure or for work, or looking to export, the Sunshine Coast Airport is a crucial piece of infrastructure for our region. The new runway that’s bigger, wider and better aligned with prevailing winds so our community can access the world from the Sunshine Coast. A new runway and better facilities means greater accessibility and more opportunities for work, tourism and exporting businesses.
