Our airport is important for our community – it is as essential for attracting new industries and tourism as it is for servicing our local community and making Port Hedland a great place to live.
We know the Port Hedland International Airport is in need of considerable improvements to bring it to its full potential. These include terminal redevelopment and upgrades to essential services, airside infrastructure and car park and traffic arrangements.
The Town of Port Hedland has been reviewing how we operate and fund the airport. We have engaged one of Australia’s leading experts The Airport Group to see if there is a more efficient operating model available – one that would provide better economic development opportunities, improve financial returns, reduce operational risks and allow better access to private investment.
The Airport Group’s recommendation is that we offer the airport for long-term lease by a private operator, an option which is the most beneficial for the community.
