Perth Airport Statement

8:30am - The following should be attributed to a Perth Airport spokesperson:

A fire adjacent to the Great Eastern Highway Bypass impacted a parcel of bushland on the Perth Airport estate early this morning.

DFES, ARFF and Emergency Servies attended. 

There has been no impact to services operating out of Perth Airport’s terminals (T1, T2, T3 and T4), however some services in the General Aviation precinct area which operates primarily FIFO charter services were impacted by staff evacuations and road closures in the precinct. Staff have been cleared to return to the precinct and operations have recommenced.

A Bushfire Watch and Act remains active for this incident. For further information on this advice please contact DFES.

The Great Eastern Hwy Bypass remains closed both directions Kalamunda Rd and Great Eastern Hwy, South Guildford. For further information please contact Main Roads.

The care, safety and security of the public and employees at Perth Airport continues to be our priority.

Perth Airport continues to work with DFES and Emergency services in the precinct.
