Cairns Airport is the seventh busiest airport in the country for passenger traffic and expects to see traffic through its Domestic Terminal grow by 40 per cent to six million passengers a year by 2027. Work currently underway will futureproof the Domestic Terminal against that increased passenger traffic and will substantively improve the airport experience for travellers.
InfraBuild has supplied 76 tonnes of ground slabs and beams to local builder Hutchinson Builders for the terminal upgrade, as well as for use in external walkways.
Greg Quinn, Hutchinson Builders Managing Director, said approximately 300 jobs would be generated during the construction phase.
"Construction activity will support the local economy through consultants, suppliers and the local community throughout the project."

Hutchinson will conduct the upgrade in nine stages, all while the airport remains fully operational.
