Simple Flying - Andrew Curran
Melbourne’s Tullamarine Airport continues to eye a third runway. The airport says construction on a third runway could start as early as 2022, with planes operating on the runway by late 2025. But a significant roadblock remains – the Australian Government is yet to give the third runway the green light.
From an efficiency perspective, Melbourne Airport says the third runway will provide greater flight capacity based on airport operations and aircraft taxiing, minimize closures caused by crosswinds, and delay the need for a fourth runway by two decades.
