Sunshine Coast Airport
With the increasing demands for air travel due to a rise in tourism to the area, Sunshine Coast Airport is growing in popularity. This regional airport has one terminal with a few shopping options in addition to a handful of eateries. There are four aircraft stands at the main terminal for larger narrow bodied aircraft, along with a separate apron with space for light aircraft to park. There are two runways at Sunshine Coast Airport, but only the larger of the two is suitable for passenger jets. The airport has an expansion plan in place, which will see the replacement of the smaller runway as well as expansion to the passenger terminal and the enhancements to airport facilities. The airport hopes that its future expansion plans will facilitate international flights to Asia, and potentially island destinations such as Hawaii.
