Airports and the air travel they facilitate are generators of significant economic growth in our wide, sparse island nation. They provide jobs, drive revenues from taxes while providing the modern connectivity required to let communities grow.

The natural inclination is to build them close to urban centres or increase the capacity of those which are. The industrial areas around airports are huge economic drivers in themselves, so positioning these in just the right way will help leverage key assets for maximum benefit.

Our work helps regions across Australia leverage aviation assets to develop strategies for growth, servicing local needs and tapping into broader opportunities for the development of business, hospitality and complementary uses that co-locate and cluster with the aviation sector.
