    Have a question about Melbourne Airport?  Our FAQ might help.

    Does Melbourne Airport support a rail link?

    We actively support the development of a rail link to Melbourne Airport. We welcome the commitments in May 2017 from both Federal and State Governments to provide funding for a feasibility study — a vital first step for this important project. A rail link will be a necessary addition to today’s mix of transport modes, as airport passenger numbers are forecast to exceed 60 million by 2033.

    Can aircraft land at Melbourne under severe weather conditions?

    Yes, Melbourne Airport is equipped with the necessary navigational and physical infrastructure to allow aircraft to continue to land and take-off in adverse weather conditions. Melbourne Airport is Category IIIb rated allowing aircraft to land in poor visibility and has an ILS on both the northern and western approach runways.

    Each airline must apply to CASA for approval to conduct Category IIIb operations and pilots need to be qualified in a Category III B approach.

    For more information about Category IIIb visit the Airservices Australia website.

    How do strong winds affect operations at Melbourne Airport?

    Melbourne Airport has intersecting runway configurations where landings of aircraft can be made from the North, South, and East or West direction, depending on wind conditions. If there are strong winds in Melbourne, Airservices Australia may advise Melbourne Airport that operations must move to one runway. Single runway operations occur frequently for a number of reasons.

    For flight delays and cancellations please contact airlines directly.
