Northern Apron Works Update

Updated 7 June 2019

Works are planned to start on the northern apron on Monday.

Despite the adverse weather forecast, at this stage the works will still be going ahead as planned. Should the weather worsen then the works may be postponed to another date but we will advise if this happens.

Please exercise extreme caution when taxiing past the works area and look out for signals and directions from works safety officers who will be there to assist.

We have reviewed our night operating requirements and whilst night operations until 10pm will still be allowed, this must be under towed conditions with engines shut down. Due to safety requirements aircraft will not be able to taxi past the works area under their own power during night hours up to 10pm. Thereafter the taxiway will not be accessible until the following morning.

Should you be planning on a night flight next week then please call our duty officer on 0417 827 557.

Northern Apron Works 2019

Updated 4 June 2019

In the coming weeks JAH will be resurfacing the northern apron taxiway.

This will result in disruptions to ground movement on the northern apron.

The works will be done in three stages. We have allowed 5 days per stage but hope to complete each stage in 4 days. The attached plan shows the different stages along with associated dates. During each stage some sites will be completely cut off whilst others will need to keep their aprons clear for use as a temporary taxiing route. JAH has consulted with these affected operators. Works safety officers will be in attendance and will direct traffic at each end.

If you operate an aircraft with a wingspan of over 12m and need to operate in the northern apron over this period please contact us via email on address This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Depending on the aircraft and nature of the movement, JAH may need to tow your aircraft through the apron area.

There will be no night movements permitted after 10pm during these closures unless with special arrangement with JAH.

In the event of inclement weather, there may be delays.  We will be posting any updates regarding the works on this page, so please check in regularly.
