International air freight pre-feasibility study

Published 2nd May, 2019

The NSW Government is undertaking a pre-feasibility study to improve international air freight connectivity in regional NSW and export fresh produce faster than ever.

Air freight is the fastest way for producers to deliver meat, dairy, fruit, nuts and seafood to customers in Australia and around the world. 

World-class air freight infrastructure would enable farmers in regional NSW to:

  • export high-value perishable produce  to markets faster
  • expand their customer base
  • increase profits
  • set the prices of their products. 

As part of the $4.2 billion Snowy Hydro Legacy Fund, the NSW Government is exploring investment options, new and existing locations for airports in regional NSW and two-way trade opportunities to maximise profitability. 

The study involves market analysis and testing, forecasting future demand and planning to meet those needs, regional stakeholder engagement, and investment recommendations.  

The final report will be delivered in mid-2019.
