“It is exceptionally pleasing to see that the City’s efforts in building a first class facility for the benefit of the South West region and the State of Western Australia has been recognised by the aviation industry. The City continues its strong track record of delivering infrastructure projects and I congratulate the City’s Airport Project Team and contractor Ertech for a job well done.”
With airside infrastructure now complete, the City is focused on pursing landside infrastructure, including development of the first dedicated airfreight hub in the South West. Works to progress the new terminal, a critical component of airport expansion, will proceed once State Government funding allocated to the project has been released.
“The City of Busselton Council extends its thanks to stakeholders across Government, industry and the broader community for continuing to support the airport expansion project. With City of Busselton operators shining so significantly in the recently announced 2018 WA Tourism Awards, it’s clear that the South West is a major tourism drawcard for the State and that demand for regular passenger flights directly into the region will increase.”
City of Busselton CEO, Mike Archer further acknowledged,
“It would not have been possible without the hard work and commitment of the in-house Airport Project Team and consultants, APP Corporation Pty Ltd, led by Director of Community and Commercial Services, Naomi Searle. I congratulate the team on their dedication.”
