Airport Master Plans

Each of the QAL Group airports operate under the Airports Act 1996 and Airports (Environmental Protection) Regulations 1997 (administered by the Department of Infrastructure and Transport). Under the Airports Act 1996 the Master Plan (now including The Environment Strategy) is mandated to be reviewed every five years.
