WELLCAMP Airport has been given the green light for regular passenger transport.

In what is a major milestone for Australia's newest airport in 50 years, the Civil Aviation Safety Authority has approved Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport as a certified aerodrome.

Wagners chairman and the airport's developer John Wagner said he was thrilled to be a step closer to seeing the airport operational.

"To have such an important component of the project ticked is a fantastic outcome and a credit to those who have been involved in the project on all levels," said Mr Wagner.

Mr Wagner said the CASA certification process had been a work-in-progress for the past 18 months and included ensuring runway specifications and airport procedures and training manuals were compliant.

"It was particularly important for us as first-time airport developers to work closely with CASA to meet their stringent requirements," he said.

As part of the CASA certification, Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport will become a "secure" airport on November 10.
