Hervey Bay Airport is the main airport for the cities Hervey Bay, Queensland, Australia and the Fraser Coast region that includes the neighboring cities of Maryborough and Bundaberg. The new airport, which is located about 9 km southeast of Pialba, started operating in 2005. The existing airfield underwent an $11.5 million upgrade which included the construction of a new terminal building and an addition of 500 m to its runway. This is to cater jet services from Jetstar and Virgin Australia.
Sunshine Express Airlines who provided daily flights to the airport from Brisbane, ceased all operations on October 1st, 2006. This was after a suggested acquisition by Regional Express Airlines was cancelled and a motive of QantasLink for the introduction of Brisbane services was declared.
With passenger numbers almost doubling, the airport was the fastest growing in Queensland in 2006. There are current plans that aim to upgrade the airport to handle more jet services from Sydney and possibly Melbourne. These plans intend to extend the terminal to twice its current size, as well as a new cross runway to be used for general aviation purposes.
The city of Hervey Bay is located a comfortable three and a half hours drive or 45 minutes flight north of Brisbane, Australia. Either pick up your rental car from BARGAIN WHEELS once you arrive in Hervey Bay or drive it up from our location further down the coast.
