Runway works

Upgrades and regular maintenance of our runways are essential in ensuring continued safe operations at Perth Airport.

An important component of our regular maintenance program is pavement renewal works.

To enable these works, the main runway (03/21) and the cross runway (06/24) will be temporarily closed at different times for periods between April 2024 and March 2025.

The current works schedule will require the following closures:


Date  Cross Runway 06/24 closure  Main Runway 03/21 closure
2 April 2024 – 6 May 2024 Between 7.30am and 5.00pm (except Sundays) -
12 April – 13 April 2024 Between 10.00pm and 5.30am   -
1 August - 2 December 2024    Between 7.30am and 5.00pm daily (except Sundays)
4 February – 4 March 2025    Between 7.30am and 5.00pm (except Sundays)

*Please note that these closures may change or vary due to operational requirements.


During the works, residents and businesses may notice temporary changes to the frequency of flights (either an increase or a decrease), depending on which runway is closed, however, the total number of flights arriving at and departing from Perth Airport has not changed.


We appreciate your understanding as we undertake these important works.
