The Whitsunday Coast Airport will be open tomorrow, Sunday 2 April, and ready to receive commercial flights into the region.
The Airport has been receiving emergency aircraft during the day over the last two days, however strict regulations are required to open the Airport for passenger aircraft.
Whitsunday Coast Airport General Manager, Ben Jones, said today the final checks and inspections were being done to get the Airport ready for tomorrow’s flights.
“We had some minor damage to the terminal and security fencing along with a lighting issue which has now been rectified, allowing us to open for night emergency aircraft today,” he said today.
“We also expect the airport to be ready to open tomorrow for passenger aircraft, to bring people home to the Whitsundays.”
“We will be back up and running and fully operational by tomorrow.”
