Moorabbin Airport is located approximately 21km South East of the Melbourne C.B.D; at the gateway to the prestigious tourism and leisure destinations of the Mornington Peninsula; in close proximity to the commercial/industrial hub of Dandenong; and within easy reach of potential leisure travellers on charter and regional services.
There is already arterial road access to major road systems serving the South and East of Melbourne as well as direct multi-lane highway access to the C.B.D.
As well as existing road access, reservations for major freeways serving the Mornington Peninsula and southern Victoria pass within 500 metres of the airport.
Given the increasing congestion of road systems in and around Melbourne central, there is a considerable saving in transit time for passengers whose final destination is to the South and East of the C.B.D.
Moorabbin Airport is also a major manufacturing and commercial centre for the South East region of Melbourne, providing a large employment base for the region.
The Airports Act of 1996 authorised the sale of Federal Government-owned airports throughout Australia. In June 1998 Moorabbin Airport Corporation Pty Ltd (MAC) successfully bid for the lease of Moorabbin Airport.
Moorabbin Airport Corporation (MAC) purchased a long term lease over Moorabbin Airport from the Australian Federal Government in June 1998.
MAC is majority owned by Goodman Holdings Pty Ltd. a private investment company with interests in a number of public and private companies in Australia and New Zealand and responsible for a substantial portfolio of commercial property.
Moorabbin Airport is viewed by MAC as a strategic long term investment, with development potential both in aviation and commercial arenas.
Moorabbin Airport Corporation has a vision to develop a high quality aviation and commercial environment on the site.
It recognises the need to enhance the regional role of the airport as part of the State infrastructure whilst being mindful of the needs of the surrounding commercial and residential areas.
A major element of this expanding role is the development, in cooperation with the travel and aviation industries, of Moorabbin as a preferred destination for charter and airlines services.
