Port Macquarie Airport is owned and operated by Port Macquarie-Hastings Council.
The Airport serves the Greater Port Macquarie and wider Mid North Coast region, and caters for approximately 230,000 passengers per year, making it the 5th largest regional airport in NSW.
Council has recently completed a $21 million airside infrastructure upgrade at the Airport to underpin our region’s future growth, economic development and tourism potential. The upgrade marks a significant milestone for the Airport and our local community, with the upgraded runway providing the capability for up to 180-seat B737 / A320 aircraft for the first time in the Airport’s 60 year history.
The Airport is operated as a commercial business unit of Council, and is self-funded by revenue received from airport operations.
The Airport supports a vibrant general aviation sector including pilot training, aircraft maintenance and repair work, freight and charter operations, emergency aero medical (patient transfer), search and rescue and bushfire fighting services (both fixed wing and helicopters), joy/adventure flights, private and recreational flying, and skydiving.
