Two more major domestic airlines will operate full service carriers from Western Sydney Airport.
Qantas and Jetstar have announced they will operate out of Western Sydney Airport following confirmation from Virgin Australia in July 2018 that it intends to operate both Virgin and Tiger Airways flights from the new airport currently under construction.
More than two million people live closer to Western Sydney Airport than the existing airport at Mascot. The airport will have a 3.7km runway, capable of servicing the largest commercial aircraft such as the Airbus A380 and Boeing 747, and will have a high-quality design reflecting the confidence and aspirations of Western Sydney.
Preparatory activities are well underway, and early earthworks will start by the end of 2018.
