This is an article published by the Sunshine Coast Airport on the growing demand for flight coming and going from the Sunshine Coast. Qantas is the national airline and now offers flight schedules to accommodate both international and domestic transfer connections via Sydney.
The new runway will also be able to accomodate more international traffic from both Asia and perhaps even open up doors to more domestic travel to Cairns and Perth.
The Sunshine Coast is growing in popularity and demand for more air traffic is inevitable.
We do however need to improve the infrastructure in terms of airport accessibility, parking options and new accommodation options. Lets see what the future holds, but to me it is pretty exciting to be part of a growing area.
