Sunshine Coast Airport’s Master Plan 2040 forecasts that traffic numbers will continue to grow.
Movement figures for all airports, including Sunshine Coast, 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. Sunshine Coast Airport tower is open from 7.30 am to 7.40 pm.
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 Sunshine Coast Airport, including circuits and training flights. The breakdowns are shown as percentages rather than total counts. This is because the source radar data for Sunshine Coast Airport has gaps due to the location of the radar at Brisbane 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.
