Airports in the SEATS region with Regular Passenger Traffic include:
RAAF East Sale
Regional air services are vital for the economic growth of the South East of Australia. Canberra is increasingly playing an import role as an export point for regionally located businesses.
In the SEATS Priority Project Strategic Statement – 2024 there is a project that seeks to have the Australian Government reform regional access at Sydney Airport including:
- release trapped slots so regional airlines can build consistent daily schedules, and to make the regional ring fence more usable
- smooth, or average, preserved regional slots to ensure the same number of regional slots are available every day in the morning and evening peaks
- provide the ability to retime regional slots by up to one hour to help with slot fragmentation
