Baggage unloading area
This project will provide the Roma Airport Terminal with:
- an additional 278m2 of floor space - catering for extra departure lounge space and seating
- upgraded baggage screening system and baggage claim facilities
- three additional check-in counters - bringing the total to six
- improved amenities.
Resource sector activity in the Surat Basin has seen passenger numbers through the region's main airport hub of Roma increase by 131% over 12 months. Roma is now one of the busiest regional airports in Australia. The existing terminal is no longer adequate for the increased passenger numbers. The upgrade will improve the safety and comfort of passengers and visitors, increase operational efficiency and reduce the passenger check-in time as well as attract airlines for direct flights to major centres.
