Canberra Airport's new terminal will be completed in mid 2013.

Canberra Airport has launched the next stage of its $420 million “AirVolution” infrastructure project, with the official unveiling of a foundation stone for the construction of the Western Concourse Terminal today.

Launched by ACT Chief Minister Katy Gallagher, Canberra Airport chairman Terry Snow and Canberra Airport managing director Stephen Byron, the Western Concourse Terminal and its associated infrastructure is due to be completed by mid-2013. That follows the opening of Canberra’s Southern Concourse terminal in November last year under the AirVolution project.

“Since its opening we have focused on the next stage of the AirVolution – the old Qantas terminal has been removed, services have been relocated, and plans finalised,” Byron said.

“We are now in the position to launch the new Western Concourse Terminal – this new concourse will mirror the Southern Concourse Terminal with the two terminals being joined by a spectacular glass atrium,” he added.

Bryon said passengers would also benefit from “additional airline lounges, new aerobridges, a doubling of the passenger screening area, more check-in counters, greater amenities and retail offerings”, as a well as four-storey undercover car park to be completed by March next year.
