Port Hedland International Airport has two runways and two interconnecting taxiways. The main runway (Runway 14/32) is 2500m long and 45 m wide. It is used for regular passenger transport and is suitable for aircraft as per our Conditions of Use document located here. The second runway (Runway 18/36) is only for general aviation aircraft limited to 5,700kg (MTOW). It is 1000m long and 18m wide.
There are three sealed apron areas – the northern general aviation apron, main RPT parking apron and southern apron and helicopter operations area. Airline aircraft are catered for on the main parking apron in the five parking bays. Large corporate and private jets can also be accommodated. Space is limited for general aviation aircraft parking on the northern and southern aprons, so we suggest you arrange prior parking approval.
Port Hedland International Airport is a security controlled airport, therefore a valid Aviation Security Identification Card (ASIC) must be worn at all times. The requirements of the Aviation Transport Security Act and Regulations apply to airside activities.
