Avalon Airport CEO Update
Avalon Airport CEO Justin Giddings talks about the new AirAsia X service from Kuala Lumpur and the construction of a new international terminal. A simple terminal design has been selected that enables construction in only about six months, enabling AirAsia X to move from Melbourne Tullamaine by the end of 2018. Mr Giddings discusses the possibility of the new terminal eventually accommodating other international routes from AirAsia X such as Bali as well as other foreign airlines. Avalon is also confident it can attract more domestic services, given the very high load factors on its existing services and the ease of travelling to/from the airport with the new SkyBus service.
