Avalon Airport Changes to Approach Procedures

View of central Geelong from The Esplanade in Drumcondra in Geelong, Australia.


What is going to change?

Airservices will implement changes to approach procedures for aircraft arriving to Runway 36 at Avalon Airport.

These changes will mean some aircraft arriving to Runway 36 at Avalon Airport fly on different tracks.

For more information on the changes please see our fact sheet.

Why are the changes necessary?

These changes will improve safety by using modern satellite based navigation technology, will reduce aircraft emissions by an estimated 95kg CO2 emissions per flight (or 38.2 tonnes of CO2 per year) and will provide a noise improvement to communities on the southern side of Port Phillip Bay.

When will this change occur?

These changes are planned for late January 2020.

Released 13 January 2020
