Flagstaff airport, elevation change sparks concern

Flagstaff, ACT – Flagstaff Airport is raising its elevation by a metre to a height of 30 metres for its new flagstaff airport.

The airport announced on Friday the elevation will be raised to 30 metres, making it the first flagstaff in Australia to reach the same height.

The elevation of the new flagfield is a result of a $1.5 million investment in the facility, which was completed in 2019.

“The elevation will increase by a couple of metres and we will be able to see more planes, and we are confident that we can bring more flights to Flagstaff,” Airport Director Peter Brown said.

“We have been really fortunate with the facilities we have at the airport and we have been able to attract more and more customers to Flagstater airport.”

And the increase in the elevation is an indicator of how we can attract more customers and we believe we can continue to do that.

“The new flag field is expected to open to commercial flights in 2019 with the first flights expected in the 2020s.

A spokeswoman for the airport said the airport was not involved in raising the elevation.”
