Melbourne's City Airport

Located just 10km from Melbourne's CBD, Essendon Fields Airport plays a pivotal role in general and corporate jet aviation, whilst providing a homebase for Victoria's emergency services airwings.

As Melbourne’s first airport, Essendon Fields Airport has long played an important role in the state’s aviation sector.

Situated on 305 hectares, the airport has two runways, and comprises a significant mix of aviation and non-aviation activities. Since 2001, the airport has undertaken numerous upgrades and is now one of the leading General Aviation and Corporate Jet Airports in Australia.

Essendon Fields Airport provides facilities and services for International and Domestic corporate aircraft, aircraft maintenance, airfreight, aircraft charter and emergency air service providers. Combined, these operators undertake more than 50,000 annual aircraft movements.
