We are taking advantage of unprecedented growth and planning for our future. In coming years, Melbourne Airport will serve more passengers, new aircraft and more flights.
As part of our planning, we prepared our 2013 Master Plan, approved by the Commonwealth Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, pursuant to Section 81 of the Airports Act 1996, on 18 December 2013.
Under the Airports Act 1996, Melbourne Airport is required every five years to prepare a Master Plan to guide the development of the airport for the next 20 years. The vision outlined in the 2013 Master Plan incorporates feedback we received through the stakeholder engagement process that included 32 public meetings and information sessions, more than 100 briefings, advertisements, social media activity, and the publication of factsheets, a website section and an interactive noise tool.
In accordance with Section 86 of the Airports Act, the approved 2013 Melbourne Airport Master Plan was published on 6 February 2014 on the Melbourne Airport website. To view a hard copy of the 2013 Melbourne Airport Master Plan visit the office of Australia Pacific Airports (Melbourne) Pty Ltd, 2nd floor, T2 (International Terminal), Melbourne Airport between 9:00am and 5:00pm, Monday to Friday.
Please note the 2013 Melbourne Airport Master Plan is a large document and may take some time to download.
The next Master Plan will be submitted to the Commonwealth Government by 18 December 2018.
