The Broome Heliport opened for business in November 2008 in response to the increasing demand for helicopter flight operations to Oil and Gas platforms in the Browse Basin. It was officially opened by the Premier of Western Australian, the Honorable Colin Barnett on 27th April 2009.
The Heliport is a multi-user facility comprising four 40m x 30m hangars with provision of apron space for each hangar. A state of the art Passenger Processing Facility (PPF) compliments the facility where passengers can be comfortably processed for flights to and from Oil and Gas platforms in the Browse Basin. The fully air conditioned PPF is equipped with check-in facilities, extensive seating for passengers, pre-flight briefing rooms, passenger security screening equipment including x-ray and breathalyzer testing, toilets and a refreshment centre.
Adjacent to the Heliport is a recently completed Heliport apron consisting of 10 separate parking bays that can accommodate upto 8 large helicopters operating simultaneously. There is also parking for fixed wing aircraft that may at times be involved in passenger movements through the PPF. Each parking bay has clearly marked pedestrian walkways to facilitate the safe and efficient transfer of passengers from the PPF to the helicopters.
Broome International Airport is equipped to provide a full service at the Heliport that includes bus transfers from the main passenger terminal, check in, security, passenger/bag screening, safety briefings, catering and ground handling services. The Oil and Gas Companies and Helicopter companies rate the Broome Heliport as a world class facility ideally suited to cater for the needs of the Oil and Gas Industry.
