Canberra Airport’s goal is a simple but ambitious one – to be the best small airport in the world. With stunning, modern terminal, thriving business precincts and new international routes, the Canberra region’s own world-class airport is well on the way to achieving this goal.
From a small airport surrounded by sheep paddocks, Canberra Airport has been transformed into a thriving precinct. Today it comprises of the terminal, Fairbairn RAAF base, Brindabella Business Park and Majura Park, which includes Majura Park Shopping Centre, home to Australia’s largest Woolworths and Canberra’s only Costco.
Capital Airport Group, the team behind the Airport, is also responsible for Canberra’s most remarkable new suburb – Denman Prospect and will soon begin construction on Constitution Place, a $300 million development in the heart of Canberra City.
Canberra Airport is strongly committed to design and public art, with sculptures and works of art dotted throughout airport terminal, neighbouring business precincts and Denman Prospect. These range from large installations by world-renowned artists such as Andrew Rogers, Phil Price and Virginia King through to a delightful collection of aluminium planes made by local school children.
