Townsville Airport launches campaign to have Qantas support planned terminal redevelopment

    Townsville Mayor Jenny Hill urged local residents to support a local campaign to have Qantas back a proposed AUD3 per passenger airport charge, to support a planned AUD40 million redevelopment of the Townsville Airport terminal (Townsville Bulletin, 29-Aug-2017). Qantas stated negotiation about the development halted in Jan-2017, after the carrier proposed a fee that was lower than the airport though necessary to fund the upgrade.
