Bankstown Airport has released commercial plans for the next 20 years, which includes lofty aspirations for the airport which appear to be born from desire, more so than requirement at this stage.
The plans outline an increase of more than double the number of passenger flights into Bankstown Airport to 32, up from the current 12 daily services. The 32 daily flights is a number based on what it’d require to create and sustain a commercial operation from Bankstown Airport, into Melbourne Airport, Brisbane Airport and regional New South Wales and not built around population growth and spread.
Bankstown Airport have said that there are no plans to bring in larger aircrafts, such as an Airbus A380 or to develop Bankstown Airport as Sydney’s second airport. The 20 year plans are to be submitted to the Federal Government early next year and the airport also held and information day on Sunday 25th October 2009 as well.
