About The Airport

Gold Coast Airport is the gateway to Australia's premier tourist destination and is the fifth busiest international airport in Australia.

Cementing its status as a world-leader in efficient airport operations and facilities, Gold Coast Airport now welcomes in excess of 6.5 million passengers per year.

Gold Coast Airport is currently investing $500 million into the airport precinct, including the Southern Terminal Expansion, which will open in 2022. The terminal expansion includes a three-level terminal with aerobridges, twice the floor area of the current airport terminal and enables an efficient operation with full swing (domestical/international) capability.

Gold Coast Airport works closely with airline partners to develop attractive incentive packages for new capacity, including Government marketing funds where possible.
