The City of Busselton is upgrading the existing Airport facilities and once completed, the Airport will be capable of facilitating air services to interstate destinations including Melbourne and Sydney and international destinations as far away as China.

Direct Flights to Melbourne
In October 2019, it was announced the Busselton Margaret River airport will operate direct flights to Melbourne via Jetstar. Services will run three times a week - year-round during daylight hours - between Melbourne Airport at Tullamarine and Busselton Margaret River Airport, bringing thousands of visitors into the region each year. This comes from significant state and local government support for the Busselton Margaret River Airport, opening doors for further investment and providing significant economic growth, employment and opportunity for the region. Flights are available for purchase now, with service beginning on March 25, 2020. View the press release here

The Airport Development Project is made possible by investment totalling $72.42 million from the Australian Government’s Community Development Grant Programme, State Government’s Royalties for Regions programme, Department of Transport’s Regional Airports Development Scheme, City of Busselton, South West Development Commission and Tourism Western Australia.

The development includes: 

  • lengthening, widening and strengthening of the runway up to 2520m (TODA) long x 45m wide to facilitate narrow and wide bodied Code 4C and E aircraft such as Boeing 737, Airbus 320 and Airbus 330;
  • construction of four new apron parking bays and connecting taxiways with Code 4E capability;
  • two helipads;
  • new terminal building capable of accommodating the expanded operations and services, with ability for future expansion;
  • new 422 bay car park;
  • general aviation precinct comprising 2 Code B aprons capable of accommodating up to 34 fully serviced hangars;
  • jet A1 and Avgas fuel facility; and
  • connection to site wide services, including water, power, sewer and telecommunication.
