Revamped Tamworth Airport opens its doors
A newly revamped Tamworth Regional Airport will make the flying experience safer and more comfortable for passengers travelling to and from one of Australia's biggest regional centres.
As part of the extension, the terminal building has been revamped, the arrivals and departures lounge space has tripled in size and the car park extended. New security screening equipment has also been fitted out including explosive trace detection machines, hand held metal detectors, and baggage screening machines.
Tamworth Regional Airport is Australia's largest regional airport and plays a hugely significant role in the local community and economy. As well as being the gateway to the New England region, the airport receives tens of thousands of visitors every year travelling to major events such as the Tamworth Country Music Festival.
Passenger travel through Tamworth Regional Airport has doubled since 2003, with an annual average increase of over 10 per cent per year – about twice the national annual average for regional aviation. The bright outlook for regional aviation means the upgraded airport will attract even more services into the future.
