Minister for Urban Infrastructure and Cities, Paul Fletcher welcomes reports this week that Qantas and Jetstar will operate from Western Sydney Airport.

This follows confirmation last month from Virgin Australia that it intends to operate both Virgin and Tiger Airways flights from the new airport currently under construction.

The airport will have a 3.7km runway, capable of servicing the largest commercial aircraft such as the Airbus A380 and Boeing 747, and will have a high quality design reflecting the confidence and aspirations of Western Sydney.

Reports which confirm that both major domestic airlines will operate full service carriers from Western Sydney Airport is great news for Western Sydney.

Western Sydney Airport will be a world class facility – and the intention of both major domestic airlines to operate there is a clear indication of the importance they see Western Sydney Airport having in Australian domestic aviation.

Preparatory activities are well underway, and early earthworks will start in the coming months. Western Sydney Airport is happening, and it’s great news for Western Sydney.

More than 2 million people live closer to Western Sydney Airport than the existing airport at Mascot, and being an international airport will ensure that the people of Western Sydney get access to the air services that they deserve.
