Newcastle Airport, the second busiest airport in the Australian state of New South Wales, has selected the Alstef Group to upgrade its international terminal.

The project, which involves an expanded outbound system and an upgraded arrivals area, forms part of the 2036 Newcastle Airport Vision, a master plan intended to deliver an airport that will stimulate the economy and social prosperity. 

The original system, which was installed by Alstef Group in 2004, will be upgraded with expanded make-up capacity and the replacement of existing sortation conveyors with Alstef Group's high-speed plough diverters. The arrivals system will feature three new feedlines and two new carousels, located in an expanded section of the building. Delivery of infrastructure will be staged with final completion scheduled for Q4 2024.  

"We will take a phased installation approach to mitigate impacts on ongoing operations, and the end result will improve the airport's overall capacity, efficiency, and passenger experience," said Alstef Group airports sales director Philippe Hamon.
