History of Mt Isa Airport

In 1922, an aerodrome was constructed to the South of Mount Isa’s city centre. To allow for the expansion of Mount Isa and its mining operations, the aerodrome was relocated to its present site on 1 February 1950.

To cater for increasing light air traffic, a light aircraft taxiway and apron was completed in 1970. In 1973, further strengthening work was undertaken to cater for the B727-200 aircraft, with heavy aircraft pavements resealed in 1975 and 1987.

The current terminal was constructed in 1969 and expanded in 1989 with the construction of the departure lounge. The terminal was extensively refurbished during 2000 at which time the departure lounge was integrated into the main building. 2010 saw an investment of $13 million to do a complete runway overlay and a terminal upgrade.
