Sydney Metro Airport Bankstown (Bankstown Airport) YSBK
2018 will see Aviatex move to its new home at Sydney Metro Airport Bankstown.
Aviatex is the premier trade show in the Australian market for general aviation products and services, and was previously held in conjunction with the Wings Over Illawarra Airshow in Wollongong. The strategic relocation to Bankstown, in the heart of Australia’s largest city, will give greater scope to take in the education and training sectors covering all areas of the aviation industry, which is a key focus for the airport going forward.
