The Western Sydney Airport is in the search for a development partner for the first stage of its on-airport business precinct.

The main entrance for stage one of the Western Sydney International Airport Business Precinct includes 13.25 hectares of airport land that will be connected by the M12 Motorway, upgraded major roads and Sydney Metro – Western Sydney Airport line.

The new airport business precinct is set to be completed in 2023, with expectations that works will create 600 jobs for the local community.

Western Sydney Airport CEO Simon Hickey said the call for expressions of interest represents the start of a great opportunity to become a part of the airport community, located in the heart of Sydney’s booming south-west, close to logistics centres, new infrastructure, housing developments and the developing Aerotropolis.

“This is a chance to get on board from the beginning and to grow with the airport and the region. The business precinct will eventually span around 200-hectares, which is about the size of the Parramatta CBD,” he said.

“In a first for Sydney, our business precinct will be linked to 24/7 air operations, opening up a world of opportunities that have never before existed in this city.”

Western Sydney International is on track to open to international, domestic and air cargo services in late 2026. Construction of the Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport passenger terminal has commenced with runway construction to begin next year.

The airport is expected to support almost 28,000 direct and indirect jobs by 2031, five years after the airport opens.

The Federal Government is investing up to $5.3 billion in equity to deliver the airport through a government-owned company, ‘Western Sydney Airport’.

Expressions of interest for the on-airport business precinct close on January 25 2022.
