Melbourne’s Essendon Fields hopes to host 20,000 workers by 2040

After hosting the Queen and The Beatles, Essendon Fields Airport now has ambitious plans to accommodate 20,000 workers by 2040 as it continues its evolution as a major Melbourne business precinct.

The airport unveiled the target at a celebration of its centenary Wednesday that looked back at past glories as Victoria’s international gateway as well as its status today as a critical aviation hub.

As Melbourne’s international airport before Tullamarine, Essendon welcomed the Queen on her visit to Australia in 1954, athletes arriving for the 1956 Olympics and 5000 screaming fans as The Beatles arrived in 1964.
