In the 2019-20 Budget, the Australian Government committed $100 million over four years to 2022-23 to the Regional Airports Program, a competitive grants program intended to:
- improve the safety of aircraft, operators and passengers using regional airports or aerodromes
- facilitate improved delivery of essential goods and services such as food supplies, health care and passenger air services
- improve the connectivity of Australia’s regions to domestic and global market opportunities
- meet the operational requirements of aeromedical and other emergency services in the region.
