Parafield Airport Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of Adelaide Airport Limited which purchased the operating leases for Adelaide and Parafield Airports in May 1998, to operate both airports for the next 50 years with an option for a further 49 years.
Parafield has a rich history of aviation and today among the non aviation activities is a vibrant environment active with flying and aeroplane and helicopter maintenance.
Over the past 90 years, Parafield Airport has played host to some of the country’s most renowned pilots and aviation enthusiasts and was originally SA’s first Aerodrome from 1927 to 1955.
Parafield Airport offers many commercial, business and retail development opportunities. Parafield Airport is in the heart of the northern metropolitan area and is well-placed to service the north of Adelaide. Opportunities exist to develop aviation, retail and other businesses.
Airspace management including environmental impacts is managed by Airservices Australia (AsA). AsA also has responsibility for the Noise Complaint and Information Service through a Noise Information phone line which records all enquiries and complaints, and on request AsA staff will respond to your concern.
