Sunshine Coast airport runway nears completion

Sunshine Coast Council has advised the new runway is now due to open on 14 June 2020, subject to weather and the impacts of COVID-19. Any such disruptions to the program may mean the June 14 date will not be met and programming will have to be reviewed.

The existing Runway 18/36, and supporting flight paths, will remain in use until the new runway is operational. While jet flights operated by QantasLink, Jetstar, Virgin and Air New Zealand have been suspended into the Sunshine Coast until at least mid-June due to travel restrictions associated with COVID-19, the airport facilitates a number of charter and general aviation flights.
