Community Aviation Consultation Group

Queensland Airports Limited (QAL) and its individual businesses continue to be recognised as responsible employers and community members through ongoing consultation, sponsorship and employee services. This is continued locally at Townsville Airport.

The ‘QAL Way’ is at the heart of our organisation and is the basis by which we create value through our airport businesses. We are focused on regional investment and growing the regional areas we serve. We are committed to a sustainable, triple bottom line philosophy through a local management approach. At Townsville Airport we understand that we have obligations and responsibilities to the communities we serve, the industries we are part of, the environment in which we work, and to our shareholders.

Community Engagement

Townsville Airport has demonstrated our strong commitment to community consultation and will continue to take a proactive approach to communicating with our local community as well as our local, state and Federal Government representatives. We remain committed to engaging with our local community and committing to a timely response to their concerns.

Community Aviation Consultation Group

Townsville Airport has established a local Community Aviation Consultation Group (CACG) to help facilitate greater community consultation, particularly on planning and development activities on the airport. These Community Aviation Consultation Group are part of the Federal Government’s Aviation White Paper recommendations and subsequent Airports Act Amendment Bill.

Townsville Airport is currently calling for members of the community to join the CACG.  If you would like to register your interest to be part of the CACG or find out  further information please contact:

Your Feedback

A survey has recently been developed to capture feedback in relation to the contribution of CACG meetings to community engagement, participation in airport planning, and operations issues. It covers topics such as the effectiveness of CACGs, the major issues discussed at CACGs, the achievements and outcomes made by CACGs and improvements that could be made to CACGs.  The survey is anonymous, and can be found here, it should take no more than ten minutes to complete.


The first meeting of the CACG was held on the 25th of July 2011.
