Private jets land 24-hour services

A 24-HOUR facility to service the corporate and private aviation market has opened at Sunshine Coast Airport. 

 Macjet, a division of McDermott Aviation, will offer terminal and ground services for private and company jets as well as charter jet aircraft that can fly as far as New Caledonia and New Zealand.

Already one mining service industry company is flying workers north from Maroochydore three times a week.

The terminal facility which costs $8 per head to access affords passengers a better option than sitting in the rain waiting for a lift.

Another lounge area will be built on the second floor of the premises near the AGL Rescue Helicopter base. Formula One driver Mark Webber and former world motorcycle champion Mick Doohan have taken advantage of the service.

Manager Simon McDermott said Macjet, initially with eight staff, could provide Customs clearance and all ground logistics.
