Hub Airport

Darwin International Airport

Darwin International Airport is the busiest airport serving the Northern Territory and the 10th most busy airport in Australia. It is the only airport serving Darwin.

The airport is located in the capital of the Northern Territory, Darwin, northern suburbs, 8km (5.0mi) from the city centre in the suburb of Mararra. It shares runways with the Royal Australian Air Force's RRAF base.

Darwin Airport has an international terminal servicing one international location, a domestic terminal and a cargo terminal. Both of the passenger terminals have a number of shops and cafeterias, although none are very inspiring and all are wallet-crippling. In 2011 the airport served 26,036 flights and 1,743,734 passengers.

Darwin International Airport also operates services for a number of airlines include Virgin Australia, SilkAir, Jetstar Airways and Donghai Airlines.



Charter Flights

Airnorth’s contract charter services extend through the Top End of Australia and to Southeast Asia and form 40% of the airline's revenue. The airline has been operating charters for 30 years, with the highest quality equipment, in the hands of the best aircrew. Airnorth’s contract and RPT air services complement one another, with significant cost and operational benefits to all customers. The ability to combine the two provides increased aircraft utilisation, interchange and backup that most operators cannot achieve. Many of Airnorth’s services to Top End communities overlap with contract destinations.

The Embraer 170, 120 and Metroliner 23 are available for contract and ad-hoc charter. Destinations include Dili (Timor-Leste), Manila (Philippines), Truscott, Port Hedland, Port Keats (Wadeye) and McArthur River. The airline's infrastructure includes a purpose-built 3,500m² hangar at Darwin, all maintenance services, with all communications, IT systems and ground service equipment.
