The Real Airport
Broome is a highly-popular tourist destination in North-Western Australia. A tropical oasis straddling the red desert sands and crystal blue waters of the world-famous Cable Beach, it is a melting pot of culture and history, richly sewn through its lucrative pearling industry and exploits during World War Two.
The airport is a major regional hub for the Kimberley and North-East Pilbara regions so expect to see a busy mix of airline traffic (Qantas, Virgin Australia, Skippers, AirNorth and Silkair), domestic and international corporate jets, and regional GA and helicopter ops. The airport is a daily host to a wide variety of aircraft, including Boeing 737-800, Airbus A320, Fokker 100, 717, Embraer 170 and DHC8 airliners, S-92 and AS332 helicopters, G550s and even the occasional Il-76. Recently, it has seen the reintroduction of international flights to Singapore, development of a large heliport to cater for the booming offshore mining industry, and a new control tower.
