Learmonth Airport

The Learmonth Airport (LEA) is a regional airport that serves as both a military base for the Australian Air Force, and a civil aviation hub for the Shire of Exmouth and the region of Coral Bay. Located along the central Western Australia coastline, this airport started life as an airfield for the RAAF in World War 2, but has more recently started operating helicopter, and commercial, flights as well.

This is a tiny airport, and you will find that only one airline runs flights out of this facility, and that is Qantas. You can fly direct to Perth (PER) from Learmonth Airport, and then choose forwarding destinations to cities all over Australia, out to New Zealand, and to cities in Asia, the Middle East and Africa.

You won’t find much in the way of facilities in Learmonth Airport (LEA) and generally it is advised that if you need to do any financial admin, like access ATMs, or a currency exchange, to do so in your origin town or city, or at Perth Airport. The same advice is proffered for any shopping you are hoping to do, as you will find that there are only basic amenities at Learmonth. However, you will find that there is a café and bar that operates in the terminal building, where you can pick up snacks and refreshments.
