Wellcamp Airport plans to go international in 2015

TOOWOOMBA'S Wellcamp Airport could be taking flights from around the world before the end of this year.

Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport general manager Phil Gregory says negotiations with an international carrier have started, he told Fairfax Media.

Brisbane Times reports that there are "big plans internationally in the short- to medium-term", according to Mr Gregory.

He said Australian government bureaucracy was the biggest challenge to the airport's international ambitions.

"There are 11 different government departments you have to deal with to get international flights out of an airport and it's a long and slow process to get your head around how it all works, who's who in the zoo and who you need to talk to," he said.

"That's probably the hardest thing, but we're chipping away at it and we're focused on understanding the process better and working out how we can make it happen."
