Moranbah Airport Redevelopment in Full Swing

We recently paid a visit to Moranbah Airport, and found that the redevelopment of the runway surface and other works (as published in a previous post HERE) is in full swing.

There are currently restrictions on public access though, and parking is limited to the grassed areas near the current 'terminal'.

Access to the fenceline is also restricted, with the picture below taken from behind newly erected baricades.

Works continue during weekdays, and once complete, QantasLink plan to increase the number of flights into Moranbah Airport to 20 return services, as well as upgrade some of these services to the larger 74-seat Dash-8-Q400 aircraft.

The major expansion of services linking Brisbane and Moranbah, which should see an additional 868 seats per week (or 86% growth) on the route, is in response to demand from the local coal and resources industries.
