Mackay airport offer terminal to Adani

Thursday 12th of January 2017 09:54:16 AM



A terminal at Mackay Airport will soon be offered to Adani in a bid to secure FIFO operations from Mackay to the Carmichael coal project.

While Mackay was named the maintenance hub for the project on December 6 last year, Adani also announced that only Rockhampton and Townsville had been shortlisted as potential FIFO hubs for the $21billion project.

Many who believe Mackay’s experience handling FIFO operations in the past would make it an obvious choice were surprised by the decision.

But within the next two weeks, Mackay Regional Council and North Queensland Airports will again meet with Adani to "refine their pitch" for the FIFO work, ahead of the final hub announcement, expected in February.

Mackay Mayor Greg Williamson said he would highlight to Adani the potential for it to operate it's own separate airport terminal, using the old terminal that was replaced in 1991.
