Building a major airport

February 8, 2017

Digging into their own pockets and their own property, John and his family built an airport just outside Toowoomba, which is capable of landing jumbos. The new airport is a driving factor in the Regional Australia Institute’s projection of a $10b expansion in the local economy over the next 15 years.

John tells Kendi Burness-Cowan how the Wagners went from talking about building an airport to opening one in the space of just a few years, and why vision and courage are essential for regional Australia.

This month is supported by the Regional Australia Institute.
