Port Hedland International Airport (PHIA) has a Highway Precinct development within the airport boundary, with the only direct RAV10 road-train access from the Great Northern Highway in Port Hedland. PHIA's Highway Precinct is centrally located in Australia's North West, the 30ha development offers tenants a set of unique benefits, including flexible lease options and infrastructure development support.

We're working hard to deliver a revitalised airport which makes the Port Hedland community proud and has the ongoing capacity to service the burgeoning mining interests, oil and gas industry and diverse opportunities in the region. PHIA Group is committed to investing in the Port Hedland community’s airport asset to keep the region ‘open for business’ and ensure the airport maintains its safety and security standards while offering enhanced customer experiences to our community.

Airport Community Update - June 2020

Site works are underway. Passengers and airport users are advised that impacts during the phased construction include;

  • Temporary traffic flow changes
  • Speed zone changes
  • Road access changes to businesses operating on the Airport
  • Changes to vehicle parking zones and ground transport areas, including the cessation of the front-of-terminal drop-off zone

PHIA seek the cooperation of all Airport users to be observant and follow directions and speed restrictions for the duration of these works. We thank you for your patience during the transformation.
