Jetstar to move to Melbourne Airport’s new Terminal 4
Sep 13, 2013
Melbourne Airport CEO, Chris Woodruff, said that the move reinforced Melbourne’s position as the centre of domestic aviation growth in Australia.
“We are delighted that Jetstar will be moving into our new domestic terminal as our anchor tenant. The new terminal will provide Jetstar with space for their growing operations as well as enhanced facilities including state-of-the-art technology”, said Mr Woodruff.
“Since commencing operations in 2004, Jetstar has improved travel in its home state by providing more choice and flexibility for Victorian travellers. We thank Jetstar for their support and look forward to assisting them transition to their new home in terminal four.”
The new terminal four and associated works including a new ground transport hub and additional aircraft parking bays, will be open to passengers by the second half of 2015.
“Low fare airlines have dramatically changed the aviation market and have had tremendous growth as a result of the way people now view air travel. We see this growth continuing and are pleased to be able to support the growth of Jetstar and low fare travel in Victoria,” said Mr Woodruff.
“Victoria is growing and so are we. Our new domestic terminal is part of a larger program of investment that will transform Melbourne Airport. Over the next 20 years, we’re investing billions of dollars to accommodate the more than 60 million passengers we expect to pass through Melbourne Airport by 2030, including upgrading facilities and improving road access, as well as planning a new runway.”
“Our investment will also support the growth of Victoria by providing thousands of jobs through the construction period and ongoing operation as we aim to become Australia’s premier aviation gateway.”
