NSW Division Meeting takes place in Tamworth this week

The Australian Airports Association (AAA) will this week host its NSW Division Meeting at newly established facilities at Tamworth Airport.

AAA Chief Executive Officer Caroline Wilkie said members from across the state would be attending the meeting to discuss a wide range of issues affecting the industry.

“We are looking forward to a packed agenda this week as members share their insights on how airports across the state are identifying growth opportunities for their regions and planning for the future,” Ms Wilkie said.

“It is also a fantastic opportunity to make use of Tamworth Airport’s new function facilities, which I am sure will be a great asset for the community in attracting events and meetings to the region.”

Tamworth Region Mayor Col Murray said it is exciting to have the opportunity to host the industry representatives from around the state.

“This event is the first of many we can see making use of the new function room built as part of the recently completed upgrade,” he said.

“It is a project which will ensure we are able to meet future travel demand and business growth opportunities.

“Our airport is a key community asset which delivers major economic benefits to the Tamworth Region through business and tourism travel and as a hub for the local aviation industry.”

Ms Wilkie said the division meeting would include an update from Tamworth Airport, including a tour of the airport.

Additional presentations will cover a range of issues including Scone Regional Airport’s warbird aviation museum, facilitating the recent royal visit at Dubbo Airport and Narrabri Shire’s airport master planning process. The introduction of international services at Newcastle Airport will also be discussed as part of the agenda.

The NSW division meeting takes place from 13-14 March and is supported by Premium Division Meeting Partner Smiths Detection and Tamworth Regional Airport.
