The Federal government says you have until December 12 to apply for funding to upgrade your regional airport.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Michael McCormack, said guidelines were now available to give airport owners and operators more information on their eligibility for the $100 million program.

“For many regional communities, the local airport provides an essential link to the rest of Australia,” Mr McCormack said. “That’s why we’ve committed $100 million over four years from 2019–20 to 2022–23 to help owners of regional airports right across Australia deliver safer runways, taxiways and other safety upgrades, such as new fencing or safety equipment.

The Regional Airports Program will make sure regional airports meet the needs of communities and local industry now and into the future.”

Round one of the program closes on 12 December.
