Melbourne Airport's Third Runway

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

UPDATED: May 14, 2020

While COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on the global aviation sector and tourism more broadly, we know demand for travel will return and the industry will emerge from the current crisis.

Melbourne Airport remains committed to preparations for the third runway which will support the movement of people and goods for many years to come, stimulating jobs and the Victorian economy.

However, our public exhibition period and community engagement activities for the Draft Major Development Plan will be postponed as we adhere to current strict social distancing measures.

We do look forward to formally engaging with the community at a later date when it is safe to do so and we will announce the new public exhibition period on our website.

Members of our community are still encouraged to contact our community engagement team via phone or email with any comments or questions, and we look forward to meeting in person once social distancing restrictions are lifted.

If you would like to be kept up to date with this project, please register your details to receive updates direct to your inbox.

We’re still here to work with you, so if you have any questions or want to find out more information you can:

  • Contact us via the Get in Touch box (right)
  • Learn more about why Melbourne Airport needs a third runway, the MDP process and the studies that form part of the MDP, by viewing the fact sheet here.
  • View the full report and summary report on our engagement findings from the series of workshops held in the community in July-August, 2019.

  • Leave a comment by using the Have your say tab (below)
  • Use the map, to help pinpoint your area of concern - this can be done by using the Local communities tab (below)
