Albany Airport (YABA), also known as Harry Riggs Albany Regional Airport is located 6 nautical miles northwest of Albany, Western Australia. It is the largest airport in the Great Southern region.

AP’s Specialist Consultant for Airport Planning and Development Ashley Grummitt visited WA earlier this month to assist the City of Albany and the Great Southern Development Commission with a review and update of the Albany Airport Master Plan.

Airport master plans are an essential planning tool and provide a framework for the staged long-term development of an airport to maximise its financial, economic and social benefits to the local community.

The Albany Airport Master Plan aims to set out the future infrastructure and facility requirements for the airport to cater for forecasted growth in airline services and passenger numbers, along with general aviation activities, to underpin the WA Great Southern region’s ongoing growth, economic development and tourism potential.

Albany Airport currently caters for RPT services to Perth operated by Rex Saab 340 aircraft and Fly-in and Fly-out (FIFO) services operated by Virgin Australia Fokker 100 aircraft, along with a range of general aviation, aeromedical and emergency fire-fighting operations.
