Orange Airport (IATA: OAGICAO: YORG) is located in the Central Tablelands region of New South Wales servicing the city of Orange[1] and the towns of Blayney and Cowra. It is located in the area known as Huntley, near Spring Hill and approximately 11 km (6.8 mi) from Orange CBD.

Facilities[edit]

The airport resides at an elevation of 3,115 ft (949 m) above sea level. It has two runways: 11/29 with an asphalt surface measuring 1,676 m × 30 m (5,499 ft × 98 ft) and 04/22 with a grassed red clay surface measuring 783 m × 30 m (2,569 ft × 98 ft).[1]

Terminal[edit]

Orange Airport's former terminal, demolished in October 2013,[2] handled all passengers using Alliance, Brindabella and Regional Express services. Formerly there were two check in desks, three hire car desks (Avis, Hertz and Thrifty), a cafe and newsagent and a large departure lounge. Secure parking and a taxi service are available.

In August 2014, Orange Regional Airports new terminal opened, which features dedicated depatures and arrivals areas, room for three airlines, a cafe, hire car desks for Avis and Hertz and a conveyor belt system. The terminal has no security screening, meaning despite the jet length runway, aircraft with over 50 seats are unable to offer services from the Airport.

Upgrade[edit]

As part of an upgrade to the airport the old airport terminal was closed on 21 September 2013 and demolished in the following weeks. During the upgrade the aero club building serves as a temporary facility while the new terminal is being built. Construction is scheduled to take 12 month and is estimated to cost A$3.3 million.[2][3]

An additional A$8.7 million will be invested in the extension of taxi ways and the runway by 538 metres.[2]
