Gold Coast Airport continues to work closely with federal and state government agencies on the COVID-19 matter, following their directions.
Our focus is on our people, our passengers and our partners.
At the airport
The Gold Coast Airport terminal will be open for a reduced number of hours each day from Wednesday 1 April, in response to reduced airline flight schedules.
The terminal will be open each day two hours before the first departure, for check-in, and 30 minutes before arriving flights, to allow anyone meeting that flight to get access to the terminal. The terminal will stay open each day until it is cleared of passengers after the last flight. These times are subject to change and are based on flight schedules.
The hours of operation for the runway and associated airfield operations will remain unchanged, and terminal operating hours will return to normal when flights are reinstated.
We continue to advise our team and partners, in line with Department of Health advice, to practise good hand and respiratory hygiene. Federal and State department of health messaging is being displayed throughout the terminal.
