The Australian Airports Association (AAA) has been connecting Australian airports for nearly 40 years.

The AAA facilitates co-operation among airport members and their many and varied partners in Australian aviation, whilst contributing to an air transport system that is safe, secure, environmentally responsible and efficient for the benefit of all Australians and visitors.

The AAA is the leading advocate for appropriate national policy relating to airport activities, to ensure regular transport passengers, freight, and the community enjoy the full benefits of a progressive and sustainable airport industry. With the support of airports and the industry’s leading organisations the AAA will continue working to secure the future of our airports.

The AAA is the national voice that represents the interests of over 360 airports and aerodromes Australia wide – from the local country community landing strip to major international gateway airports. Our Airport members represent vital infrastructure crucial to the communities in which they operate and for the overall national economy.

The AAA also has more than 120 corporate members representing aviation stakeholders and organisations that provide goods and services to the airport sector. The AAA partners with corporate members to provide opportunities for all members to build networks and lasting business relationships.
