Townsville Australian Airports (Townsville) Pty Limited and Australian Airports (Mount Isa) Pty Limited own and operate Townsville International Airport and Mount Isa Airport under a 99 year lease, signed in 1998 with the Australian Government.

AAL is strongly involved in the promotion of North Queensland and the advancement of state, national and international airport operations with executive representation on a wide variety of bodies including Townsville Enterprise, the Australian Airports Association (AAA) and Airports Council International (ACI).

Townsville International Airport is the centre of aviation in the North Queensland Region. The Airport is situated on a coastal flood plain between Rowes Bay and the Bohle River, some 5km west of the Townsville city centre. AAL operates the airport under a Joint User Agreement with the Department of Defence, with AAL leasing an area of 81 hectares of the airport for civil aviation purposes. As a joint user facility, the responsibility for planning and development of the Airport is shared by both the Department of Defence and AAL.

The airport serves the Northern Statistical Region with a population of 200,170 and Townsville as the largest city in North Queensland with a population of 141,000.

HISTORY

Townsville's first aerodrome was located at Ross River and was licensed by the Department of Civil Aviation on 19 June 1930. The aerodrome was transferred to the City of Townsville in 1937 and the licence lapsed on 31 March 1941.

The present airport was developed initially by the City of Townsville, under a provisional licence granted on 26 January 1939 to allow use of the new airport during favourable winds and when the Ross River site was unusable due to wet weather. Operations commenced in February 1939.

The RAAF established a base at the airport in December 1939 and the then Department of Air acquired the airport in December 1940 and retained control after World War II.

The present 2438 metre long main runway was completed in 1958 and resurfaced in 1986. The secondary runway dates back to 1939.

In August 1980, Qantas requested Government approval to commence international services through Townsville to the USA and New Zealand with B747 aircraft from February 1981. The Government approved the request and allocated $5 million to provide the necessary infrastructure. A new international terminal building and associated pavement works to accommodate B747 aircraft were constructed and commissioned in line with the commencement of international services.
