Gold Coast Airport, or Coolangatta Airport, (IATA: OOL, ICAO: YBCG) is an Australian domestic and international airport on the Gold Coast, situated in the suburb of Bilinga. Over two million passengers a year use the airport.

The airport was previously known as Coolangatta Airport. It originally consisted of three grassy strips with the intention of only providing emergency landings. In 1958, the taxiway and runaways were sealed which allowed commercial aircraft land at the site. In 1980, the main terminal titled, Eric Robinson Building, was opened by Acting Prime Minister Douglas Anthony and was renamed Gold Coast Airport following the full privitisation of the airport in 1999. [1] Despite the name change, Gold Coast Airport still carries IATA Airport Code, OOL.

It is anticipated that a railway station will be constructed at the airport when the Gold Coast line is extended. This will make Brisbane Airport and Gold Coast Airport the first in Australia to be connected by rail.
