Portland Airport: Supporting a thriving business community

The airport was developed in 1982 to provide for growing business demand. Most of this was borne from the development of Alcoa, one of Australia’s most successful smelting options. During the past three decades trade has grown to support the thriving business community. Major customers include the Port of Portland, renewables, manufacturing, mining and forestry sectors in addition to thriving agricultural markets. Portland Airport is a major gateway to some of Australia’s greatest tourist attractions. These include the Great Ocean Road, Grampians National Park and Coonawarra wine region and Limestone Coast.

A busy multi-use Airport

During its peak trade, the airport supported four daily flights to Melbourne carrying more than 20,000 passengers per year. Weekday connections to Adelaide have also been available. The airport provides a broad range of other services including charter flights, freight, RFDS and other commercial business aircraft. It is also an imperative base for emergency service operators and used for Aviation Defence training exercises. Charter operators are a substantial user of the airfield. Regular national business and organisations use the facility in addition to pleasure users.
