Cairns Airport's domestic terminal will be future-proofed to accommodate increasing passenger traffic under a $55 million redevelopment plan set to begin in August.
The project will create more than 300 jobs during construction and a further 150 permanent jobs once operational. The redevelopment is due to be completed by 2020.
Cairns Airport CEO Norris Carter said the multi-million dollar transformation would create a "world-class airport experience" for travellers, with domestic terminal traffic expected to grow by 40% over the next decade, equating to around six million passengers a year.
The plan will expand the domestic terminal footprint to 10,000 square metres, with the departures hall boasting additional seating and passengers enjoying easier navigation of the terminal. A range of extra food and beverage and retail offerings will also be added.
