In July 2019, Perth Airport released the preliminary draft of its Master Plan 2020. The plan outlines $2.5 billion of investments for the airport over the coming decade. This investment will support the consolidation of all commercial air services into the 'Airport Central Precinct. This will include:

  • expanding international facilities as part of the international terminal upgrade project
  • constructing a new terminal to consolidate the Qantas Group operations to Airport Central by 2025
  • constructing multi-storey carparks within the consolidated airport precinct, and
  • constructing a third runway.


These projects will support forecast growth in passengers and aircraft movements at the airport. The next stage of consolidation is the International Terminal Upgrade project, this will include:

  • a new international departures area
  • expanding the retail offerings
  • new lounges
  • a new baggage handling system, and
  • new parking and taxiways for aircraft.


The development plans for the airport also include ground transport infrastructure. This will include multi-storey carparks and access from the new Airport Central Train Station to all terminals.

The Preliminary Draft Master Plan 2020 is open for public comment until 18 October 2019. The Plan will then be submitted to the Commonwealth Government for approval.

 Perth Airport Third Runway

STATUS: Credibly proposed
VALUE: $520M AUD
SECTOR: Other transport
JURISDICTION: WA
PROCUREMENT APPROACH: Traditional procurement
TYPE: Greenfield

Perth Airport will deliver a third runway before the end of the decade (subject to demand).

The third runway is proposed to be 3,000 metres long and 45 metres wide and run parrallel to the existing main runway. It will be located between the current international terminal (T1) and Abernethy Road.

The development will also include approximately nine kilometres of taxiways and other associated airfield infrastructure and systems.

The design of the new runway and international apron was awarded to a Aurecon AECOM Joint Venture in September 2015.

Approval is now required from the Commonwealth Government.

In June 2018, Perth Airport Corporation released a preliminary draft major development plan for the new runway for public comment. This plan is due to be submitted to the Federal Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and regional Development in late-2019 for consideration.

Perth Airport anticipates approval and the decision to build to happen in 2019, with construction to take four years. An opening date between 2023 and 2028 is forecast subject to demand and airline commercial agreements.

Infrastructure Australia list the new runway as a medium term (5-10 years) Priority Initiative on its Infrastructure Priority List.

In July 2019, Perth Airport released the preliminary draft of its Master Plan 2020. The third runway is a key element of the airport's development plans and forms part of the $2.5 billion investments for the airport over the coming decade. The runway will support the Perth Airport’s forecast growth and consolidation plans to bring it's terminals into an 'Airport Central Precinct'.
