At the airport

The Mount Isa Airport terminal will open when passenger services are operating. Opening hours have reduced in response to a change to passenger services as a result of COVID-19. General aviation and essential services such as RACQ Life Flight continue to operate from Mount Isa Airport.

Additional hygiene measures are in place at Mount Isa Airport, including extra cleaning. We continue to advise our team and partners, in line with Department of Health advice, to practise good hand and respiratory hygiene. Department of Health and Queensland Health messaging is being displayed throughout the terminal.

In keeping with recent federal government regulations, there has been some changes to food and beverage operations at Mount Isa Airport. Our cafe continues to offer a takeaway service for our customers.

We are recommending, where possible, our customers follow social distancing guidelines.

Social distancing measures in the terminal include: 

  • Removal of tables and changes to seating in food and beverage areas and throughout the terminal
  • Placement of markers in queuing areas to encourage passengers to observe a safe distance of at least 1.5 metres from others
  • Only departing passengers are permitted in the departure lounge
