Master plan

The Australian Government approved Sydney Airport’s new Master Plan 2033 on 17 February, 2014. It replaces the previous 2009 master plan.

Our master plan outlines the strategic direction for the airport’s development over the next 20 years. It includes:

  • An assessment of the future needs of airlines and other airport users;
  • A land use zoning plan, forecast changes in the number of airline passengers;
  • Flights and the volume of air freight;
  • Information about aircraft noise;
  • Plans for dealing with any environmental issues associated with implementing the new master plan;
  • An outline of significant investments to improve traffic flow in and around the passenger terminal precincts and;
  • A five-year Environment Strategy and Ground Transport Plan.

The master plan is based on:

  • No change to the curfew;
  • No change to the aircraft movement cap;
  • No change to noise sharing arrangements;
  • No change to access arrangements for regional airlines and;
  • No new flight paths or runways.
