Canberra Airport

Canberra Airport

Canberra Airport was built up from an old airstrip that was first laid down in the 1920s, not long after the National Capital site was decided. In 1939 it was taken over by the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF), with an area leased out for civil aviation.

Canberra Airport is the airport serving Australia's national capital, Canberra. Although there are no current international flight services, Air Pacific briefly offered a service to Fiji in 2004. The Airport serves flights to and from domestic destinations, mainly in south eastern Australia.

Today, ten years later, Canberra Airport has evolved into a multi-modal transport hub, business and retail destination.

The multi award winning Brindabella Business Park is arguably Australia's greenest business centre. It is home to approximately 5,000 workers and encompasses 18 A-grade commercial buildings totalling 100,000m2 NLA. The former RAAF base at Fairbairn is now their largest commercial precinct, and represents the second stage of the Airport's business hub and is currently occupied by approximately 2,000 workers. Majura Park is their newest multi faceted precinct, with an exciting combination of factory outlet retail (Brand Depot), "big-box" retail and commercial office accommodation (26,000m2 NLA).

Their Vision

Their vision is to develop Canberra Airport as a first-class facility to serve the region's evolving transportation needs and to maximise the Airport's contribution to the region's economy, through:
