Who We Are

Our History

Essendon Fields Airport has played a significant role in Melbourne’s economic growth, having served as the city’s international and domestic airport until 1970.

Since 2001, the long term lease to Essendon Fields has been owned by joint venture between the Linfox Group and Beck Corporation (Essendon Airport Pty Ltd – EAPL) providing significant logistics and property experience.

Centres of Excellence

Today, Essendon Fields comprises Essendon Airport and 6 main Centres of Excellence; Auto Centro, DFO and Homemaker, Business District, Leisure, LaManna Direct and a Hotel with adjoining Restaurant, Bar and Events Centre.

Essendon Fields is committed to creating better ways to fly, shop, work, drive, eat, rest and have fun.

Our vision is to create a unique, world class Aerotropolis; connecting workers, suppliers, executives and goods to the domestic and global marketplace.

We will achieve this by successfully and uniquely integrating aviation, retail, commercial, heritage and green spaces.


Aviation at the Heart

Aviation is at the heart of Essendon Fields. 

Essendon Fields Airport is the main corporate jet port for Melbourne. Regional Public Transport (RPT) services regional Victoria and Flinders Island in Bass Strait with daily flights. Emergency services such as Air Ambulance, Police Air Wing, Aero Rescue, The Royal Flying Doctor Service and The Erickson Air Crane Helicopters play a critical role in the local community.

Essendon Fields recognises that a strong heart is vital for general health.  As such, significant funds have been invested into the Essendon Airport infrastructure over the past decade and will continue into the future.

If aviation is the heart of Essendon Fields, our landside developments are our lungs. Our heart keeps us alive and our lungs breathe life into Essendon Fields for visitors to enjoy in so many different ways.

At Essendon Fields, we are continually looking for The Better Way™ to do things. We are constantly challenging ourselves if what we are offering is unique and better than any alternative that currently exists.

Our mission is to provide our customers with truly memorable moments and experiences.
