Project Scope: Gold Coast Airport expects its passenger numbers to double from its current level of 6.5 million passengers annually by 2037. The work currently underway on its southern terminal will allow the airport to meet the expected increase in passenger numbers, as well as improve the traveller experience.
Work on the terminal expansion, led by Lendlease as the primary contractor, will double the footprint of the existing airport, deliver four aerobridges, add new retail space and allow for upgraded boarding and departure lounge facilities. Once the expansion of the southern terminal is complete, work will begin on refurbishing the existing terminal.
Of note is the fact that Gold Coast Airport’s parent company, Queensland Airports Limited, recently became one of the first Australian airport groups to secure a sustainability-linked bank loan to help fund the terminal expansion. These loans are based on carbon accreditation and a commitment to reduce carbon emissions across all airport operations.
