Where next for Griffith Airport?

With the launch of this website for Griffith Airport, it’s an opportune time to consider what’s next for Griffith Airport.

The Sydney market has never been better serviced than now. Regional Express provides six return services on weekdays and three returns on Saturdays and Sundays. There’s even a daily service to Broken Hill.

Passenger demand continues to grow strongly. In 2018 passenger numbers through Griffith Airport increased by 8.4% to 80,000. This makes Griffith Airport the 45th busiest in Australia.

Where to next?

The question of a Melbourne service looms large. This is hampered by the negative perceptions stemming from previous failed attempts to service the route by REX and more recently Par Avion.

Meanwhile in Melbourne, the newly refurbished Essendon Fields airport terminal is about to open. New services from regional NSW centres such as Orange, Dubbo and Wollongong are already flying direct to Essendon.

Will Griffith be the next connection?
