Our Vision & Purpose


To safely operate a viable airport, within a world class aviation and commercial precinct, realizing the development potential of the site as a Metropolitan Activity Centre and State Significant Transport Gateway, supporting 20,000 jobs over the next 20 years.


We’re building an enduring legacy in aviation and property, establishing Essendon Fields as a Metropolitan Activity Centre in Melbourne’s North West.

Safety is our first thought in all activities.

Together we will operate a viable airport that connects Melbourne to the regions and beyond, provides a critical base for emergency services, is Australia’s premier business aviation hub, and is known for its broad commitment to general aviation, and deliver an urban renewal precinct with capacity for more than 20,000 jobs.

We will thoughtfully manage the necessary co-existence of aviation and property land uses to optimise the commercial opportunities available across all sectors, consistent with our approved Master Plan.

Businesses and their employees are attracted to Essendon Fields because we create quality workplaces with unbeatable amenity in an environment that people enjoy – places that are accessible, attractive, sustainable, affordable, encourage collaboration and support business growth.

We understand our social responsibilities that go beyond generating financial returns, and bring a can-do attitude to all of our stakeholder relationships.  We support the surrounding community with pride.

These are the responsibilities we have to government, the community, our customers and owners.
