Moorabbin Airport

Moorabbin Airport

Moorabbin Airport is one of the Australia's Premier General Aviation and Pilot Training Airports.


The 293 hectare site was acquired in 1946 and opened in December 1949. Oddly enough the first landing, a Bristol twin engined freighter, was in an emergency situation before the airport was officially opened and the aircraft was confiscated by the Government. Moorabbin Airport is now the major centre in Victoria for training, charter, aerial work and private flying. It is also the maintenance and aircraft sales capital of southern Australia.

Moorabbin Airport Corporation (MAC) purchased a long term lease over Moorabbin Airport from the Australian Federal Government in June 1998.

MAC is majority owned by Goodman Holdings Pty Ltd. a private investment company with interests in a number of public and private companies in Australia and New Zealand and responsible for a substantial portfolio of commercial property. Moorabbin Airport is viewed by MAC as a strategic long term investment, with development potential both in aviation and commercial arenas.

Vision

Moorabbin Airport Corporation has a vision to develop a high quality aviation and commercial environment on the site.

It recognises the need to enhance the regional role of the airport as part of the State infrastructure whilst being mindful of the needs of the surrounding commercial and residential areas.

A major element of this expanding role is the development, in cooperation with the travel and aviation industries, of Moorabbin as a preferred destination for charter and airlines services.

The above passenger facility can be supplemented by:

Moorabbin Airport has a common user terminal facility which is upgradeable in the short term to provide baggage and check-in facilities for regional operations. These facilities are suitable now for executive charter operations.
Alternatively direct vehicle to aircraft transfers of charter passengers may be available during business hours.

Public parking is available within 50 metres of the terminal building and this, coupled with a simple and quick transit to the aircraft is most attractive to the leisure market. Business travellers also appreciate the short transit times when compared with multi-gate domestic terminals.

Moorabbin Airport Management is most flexible and is willing to assist all operators and visitors with help and assistance in all areas of aircraft and passengers operations.
