The property and infrastructure group Lendlease has been appointed to deliver Gold Coast Airport’s southern terminal expansion – the next phase of the $370 million airport redevelopment called Project LIFT.

The agreement will see the development – a three-level terminal, including aerobridges, built to the south of the current facility – move forward in coming months. The airport said the project will generate up to 1,500 jobs during construction.

Queensland Airports Limited CEO, Chris Mills, commented: “Gold Coast Airport looks after 6.6 million passengers a year, and this will more than double by 2037.

“The existing terminal is currently operating beyond capacity. This expansion will not only help us meet demand, it will create an entry point to the city, befitting the nation’s leading tourism region.”
