The Queensland Government has committed $60 million to build a maintenance, repair, and overhaul facility at Rockhampton Airport as part of the Jobs and Regional Growth Fund. The project will create many construction jobs for its duration of work.

The growth of Alliance Airlines has led to the need for a new base maintenance facility. This will mean more opportunities in supply chain development, with major work being done locally and by local companies.

Alliance Airlines will build Rockhampton aircraft maintenance facility.

Alliance Airlines is a well-established company that operates across Australia, Papua New Guinea, and New Zealand. With an impressive fleet of aircraft, they are able to provide dedicated services for mining/energy sectors as well as support tourism with charter flights or airlifting shipments in their planes as well as providing dedicated charter or aviation services to government sectors with their Fokker and Embraer aircraft.

Steve Padgett, the Chairman of Alliance Airlines said that their recent $250 million investment in fleet growth was what led them to move primary maintenance operations to Queensland.

Alliance Airlines is thrilled to be collaborating with the Queensland Government, whose budgetary assistance will go directly toward building a state-of-the-art facility. This comes on top of the Australian Government’s recent announcement about 25 million dollars for enhancements at Rockhampton Airport that better serves and makes traveling easier.
