Western Sydney Airport
Set to open in 2026, Western Sydney Airport is a transformational infrastructure project that will generate economic activity, provide employment opportunities closer to home for people in the Western Sydney region, and meet Sydney's growing aviation needs.
The Australian Government established a Government-owned company, WSA Co, and is investing up to $5.3 billion in equity to deliver the airport. WSA Co will be responsible for construction of the airport.
Thousands of jobs and opportunities for local businesses will be created. The airport is expected to support almost 28,000 direct and indirect jobs by 2031, five years after the airport opens.
Thorough environmental assessment has informed measures that will mitigate and manage the effects of the airport's construction and operation on surrounding communities.
Discover what a Western Sydney Airport could look like in a range of airport and rail videos on the Western Sydney Airport Portal.
