QantasLink (de Havilland Dash 8 400) and Regional Express (Saab 340) offer scheduled air services. Virgin Australia (Embraer ERJ-190) began the first scheduled jet service from 13 October 2008. It is also home to Cobden Air and the Mildura Aero Club.
Its terminal facilities underwent renovation in September 2012, a $6.4 million revamp by builders Mossop Construction + Interiors. This was completed to modernize the airport, as well as increase its passenger handling capabilities to support future air travel growth.
