Moorabbin Airport

Movements

Moorabbin Airport’s Master Plan foreshadows that movements will continue to grow. This plan forecasts that movement numbers are expected to reach 500,000 per annum sometime between 2040 and 2060. The Moorabbin Airport Master Plan 2015 was approved by the federal government in 2016.

Movement figures for all airports, including Moorabbin, are published monthly in the Movements at Australian Airports reports. The movement data used in this report is collected during the hours when the control tower is open. Flights outside these hours are not included in the report. Moorabbin Airport tower is open from 8am to 8pm Mondays to Fridays and 8am to 7pm on weekends.

Select a quarter below to see charts illustrating the breakdown of movements for each quarter. These charts include arrivals and departures as well as flights that both begin and end at Moorabbin Airport, including circuits and training flights. The breakdowns are shown as percentages rather than total counts. This is because the source radar data for Moorabbin Airport has gaps due to the location of the radar at Melbourne Airport. As these gaps occur randomly throughout the day, the data, while incomplete, provides a representative picture of the weekly, hourly and day/night distribution of operations.
