Located 11km from the town center of Newman, Australia is the Newman Airport, which provides the only means of transport between town and the city of Perth. It is currently owned and operated by the Shire of East Pilbara, which also funds the expansion projects for the airport.
Newman Airport has one runway, 05/23, which measures 2,072m in length. Before, events such as drag races were held on this runway every year. However, since the airport became more and more busy each year due to passenger demand, it will no longer be the venue of such event.
The airport has one terminal building, which underwent an expansion project in 2008. Improvements include installation of conveyors in the baggage collection area, and expansion of the passenger waiting room.
