Bankstown. Expanding freight services

Bankstown Airport Limited is exploring the feasibility of expanding overnight freight aircraft operations. “The airport is considering the facilitation of dedicated Boeing 737 freighter aircraft, or a similar type, at the airport, which currently has regular overnight freight activities undertaken by medium-sized propeller driven aircraft,” said CEO, Colin Grove. “In regard to any increase in the current limited passenger services … the airport is awaiting the outcome of the Sydney Basin Aviation Capacity Study prior to formulating a position in respect of this matter.”
