"Overseas Flights a Step Closer for Newcastle Airport"
Extracted from Port Stephens Examiner Jessica Brown 11/6/2014
Terminal Expansion is set to start in July
NEWCASTLE Airport's $11.1 million terminal expansion, which could pave the way for international flights, will start in July after contracts were awarded to company Hansen Yuncken.
"Hansen Yuncken has a considerable presence in the Hunter and we are delighted to be working with an organisation to support jobs and the local economy," Newcastle Airport chief executive Paul Hughes said
The announcement was made today, with the Minister for Planning and Environment Pru Goward calling the expansion a demonstration of the state government's commitment to the Hunter.
The multimillion-dollar development is funded by the NSW government's Hunter Infrastructure Investment Fund.
Terminal concept plans include international capabilities and were originally developed by Schreiber Hamilton Architecture, in consultation with stakeholders, airlines and border agencies.
The expansion will result in additional domestic flights, more retail space and include infrastructure capable of handling international flights.
It is expected the full construction process will be completed by the end of 2015.
Parliamentary Secretary for Regional Planning and Port MP Craig Baumann said the construction would boost jobs and open up international-travel possibilities.
"It will be a long-lasting boost to the visitor economy to one day secure routes into south-east Asia," Mr Baumann said.
"In addition to construction jobs, the expanded terminal will support additional retail and aviation jobs."

Tony took his time to meet my requirements
When looking for a property for my parents, I was introduced to Tony. After I described my requirements, he took the time to show me areas that fulfilled my requirements, and then specific locations, floor plans and similar new homes that he believed, based on my criteria, would be suitable. Thank you Tony.
Nothing but wonderful!
My venture into my first home on the coast was made easy by the support from Tony and his team. They were nothing but wonderful!
Willing to go the extra mile
Tony and his team were willing to go the extra mile to show us properties in new and growing areas that would be suitable to include in our investment portfolio. Following our earlier success in securing a new build on land in the Newcastle region, we were keen to investigate other locations which would provide capital growth and good rental return with a low vacancy factor. His team thoroughly researched all those requirements and provided great options.
