The Sunshine Coast Airport upgrade will deliver a new 2450m long by 45m wide east–west runway, capable of servicing aircraft such as the A330, B787 and B777. It will enable direct flights to more destinations across Australia, Asia and the Western Pacific.

Other key features of the project include:

- proposed changes to airspace and flight paths
- two end taxiway loops, navigation aids and expansion of the existing apron and terminal
- an Air Traffic Control Tower and Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting Services Station
- dredging of up to 1.1 million cubic metres of sand for fill from Spitfire Realignment Channel at Moreton Bay
- transport and temporary mooring of a dredge offshore at Marcoola for sand pumping to the project site
- temporary construction operations including a sand pumping pipeline and tailwater release to the Marcoola Drain.

The project received EIS approval in May 2016, and in July 2016 the Commonwealth Government provided approval to construct and operate a new runway.

In November 2016, the Federal Government approved a $181 million concessional loan for the project.

Beca, Arup, Golder Associates, LEAPP, BTM WBM and WT Partnership have been awarde the design consultant contract for the project.

The new runway is planned to open in 2020.
