Broome International Airport

Broome International Airport

When the Geraldton-Derby airmail service first landed at Broome in 1922, the "airport" was any smooth patch of sand on Cable Beach. Sometime in the mid 1920s, a dirt strip was graded adjacent to the old race course, near the airport's current location.


By 1935, the east-west airstrip was laid out in its present alignment. As aircraft became larger and faster, the runway expanded but the airport was really nothing more than a graded strip and a covered shed for a "terminal".

Broome International Airport, the largest Regional Airport in Australia, serves Broome and the Kimberley, and is the Gateway to the Region. The airport serves a mixture of scheduled jet and turboprop passenger services (RPT), extensive General Aviation and Charter services, Helicopter Operations and Coastwatch.

The airport is the service base of a number of significant Kimberley Industries. These industries include Tourism, Mining, Off shore Oil and Gas and the Pearling industries.

Existing statistics show for the financial year 2007/08, Broome International Airport handled a total of 380,000 Passengers with a total of 33,610 Aircraft movements.
