Thank you to those who provided feedback. Any feedback received will be provided back to Council before this proposal is considered for adoption.


To assist with the financial sustainability of the Wagga Airport into the future, at the 13 February 2023 Council meeting, Council resolved to increase the passenger service charge by a minimum of $2.00 (GST exclusive) each year.

At the 26 February 2024 Ordinary Council Meeting it was resolved to place the draft 2024/25 Airport Fees and Charges on public exhibition for a period of 28 days from 27 February 2024 to 26 March 2024.

Public submissions are invited during this period.

Following the public notice period Council will receive a report addressing any submissions made in respect of the draft 2024/25 Airport Fees and Charges, and will propose adoption of the 2024/25 Airport Fees and Charges unless there are any recommended amendments deemed to be substantial and requiring a further public exhibition period.

It is proposed that the new Passenger Services Charges rates commence from 1 August 2024

Financial Implications

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the financial position of the Wagga Airport has declined significantly over the past few financial years.

In order for the Airport business to return to surplus and to fund any future capital spend at the Airport, the proposed yearly minimum increase in fees and charges is required.


In order for airport users to be provided with adequate notice of the change in fees and charges for the 2024/25 financial year, a three (3) month notification period is required for Airlines to enact this change. It is anticipated that the final adoption report for these fees and charges will be presented to the 8 April 2024 Council meeting, responding to any public submissions received during the public exhibition period, with the new passenger service charges to commence from 1 August 2024.
