Queensland’s Government announces new MRO facility at Rockhampton Airport

    Queensland‘s Treasurer and Minister for Investment Cameron Dick announced (26-Aug-2021) a new AUD60 million (USD43.4 million) aviation MRO facility will be constructed at Rockhampton Airport with support from Queensland Government’s Jobs and Regional Growth Fund. Mr Dick said Alliance Airlines would establish the facility to maintain its growing fleet of aircraft that currently has major maintenance activities carried out overseas. Alliance Airlines chairman Steve Padgett stated: “This move will give us better control and coordination of our fleet, minimise costs and exposure to border closures and currency fluctuations, and will increase efficiencies across the entire Alliance group”. Mr Padgett added: “Once the facility is fully operational, we expect to achieve approximately AUD20 million (USD14.5 million) per annum in full export replacement”.
