Western Sydney Airport
The Australian Government is investing up to $5.3 billion in equity to build the Western Sydney Airport. A new Government-owned company, WSA Co, has been established to deliver the airport.
The Government is strongly committed to the Western Sydney region, where the new airport will be a major generator of economic activity—providing employment opportunities closer to home for the people of Western Sydney.
The airport is expected to generate around 20,000 direct and indirect jobs by the early 2030s. As the airport grows, more jobs will be generated.
The Western Sydney Airport will begin operations in 2026.
