Cunderdin Airport (ICAO: YCUN) is located at Cunderdin, Western Australia.

Proposed redevelopment[edit]

WA-based Ascent Aviation has proposed a $200 million redevelopment of Cunderdin Airport, initially to be used as a diversion airport for Perth Airport, and in the future host a pilot training college and facilities to handle cargo freighters.[2] The proposed redevelopment would see the construction of a 2600m runway with full international landing aids and space for four A380-sized aircraft. It has been proposed as a diversion airport for Perth Airport due to it being approximately fifteen minutes' flying time; not being affected by the same weather that would cause a diversion from Perth Airport; and the cost-benefit to airlines of having a closer diversion airfield.[2]
