A range of hygiene and communication measures are in place throughout the terminal to help keep our passengers safe, including increased cleaning and hand sanitiser available in several locations.

We are asking you for your help – and here’s what you can do:

  • Don’t travel if you are sick
  • Practise good personal hygiene
  • Follow the markers in place throughout the terminal, physically distancing where practical
  • Download the COVIDSafe app

Operating hours

The Mount Isa airport terminal is open when passenger services are operating. Opening hours remain reduced, but are increasing as airlines put on additional services.

Due to changes to flight schedules, there has been a temporary change to the operating hours of some of our food and beverage and retail operators. We apologise for any inconvenience.

The hours of operation for the runway and associated airfield operations remain unchanged for general aviation and other activities.
