Hamilton Airport


The Hamilton Airport is located north of the Hamilton CBD on Hensley Park Road.

In 2019, a $5.2 million upgrade took place at the airport, which included an upgrade to the terminal, strengthening and resealing the apron and taxiways, a new LED apron and runway lighting system including floodlighting of the apron, new office buildings, carpark expansion and installation of a Precision Approach Path Indicator System (PAPI) to provide guidance information to help pilots acquire and maintain the correct approach.

The upgrade also included the extension of the existing North/South runway to a length of 1700m. The runway extension allows for larger aircraft to land, bringing a wide range of benefits to the region including increased employment and investment, as well as improved social and community opportunities.

Council continues to advocate, and investigate options for, the return of a passenger air service to the Hamilton Airport.
