WATCH out world, here we come.

That was the message out of the Ag in the Asian Century conference yesterday after John Wagner announced that the Wellcamp Airport had reached a major milestone.

Mr Wagner revealed that the airport had received approval for international freight.

It means that the Darling Downs' world-famous agricultural produce can now be flown to markets around the world directly from its region of origin.

First to take flight will be chilled beef, but beyond that the opportunities are endless.

This is a significant moment for Wagners and the Wellcamp Airport.

The airport already provides daily passenger flights to Sydney and across Queensland.

But the Wagner family had always aimed to use the airport to give Darling Downs farmers the ability to export to lucrative markets in Asia and around the world.

It was an ambitious goal, but like they always seem to do, the Wagner family has delivered.
