The airfield infrastructure at the Airport is currently undergoing significant transformation as part of the Sunshine Coast Airport Expansion Project (SCAEP).
The SCAEP includes:
- decommissioning of the existing 650 metre Runway 12/30, completed in February 2018
- decommissioning of the existing 1,797 metre Runway 18/36, to occur in 2020
- construction of the new 2,450 metre Runway 13/31, to be completed in 2020
The new runway is aligned to take advantage of the prevailing wind conditions and has been designed to accommodate wide-body aircraft (e.g. A330/B787). The new runway is designed to be 2,450 metres long and 45 metres wide, with a runway strip of 300 metres.
Runway usage statistics for each quarter are available below. In some cases the runway used is unknown (“UNK”). This is due to limitations in the data.
