The airport is serviced twice daily by Virgin Australia who utilise 68-seat ATR-72s to Sydney; QantasLink who utilise a combination of 50 seat Dash 8-300s and 74 seat Dash 8-400s to Sydney; Regional Express (REX) who utilise 36 seat Saab 340s on services to Sydney and Melbourne.

Virgin Australia launched services to Albury on 5 February 2008 (as Virgin Blue) with double-daily Embraer 170 services-one of its first new ports served by the aircraft. They were the first since Ansett (and still are the only) airline to operate jet services to the airport. Since the launch of services, fares to and from the airport have been reduced significantly. The airline has said it will launch new routes and more services out of Albury should a need be apparent, yet as of April 2010, no new services have been launched.[5] Following the launch of the service, the airline put 1,000 seats on the route on sale for 1 cent-the cheapest fare ever offered into the airport.[6]

In 2014, nonstop flights using 737 aircraft were looked at to Brisbane to give both direct access to Queenslanders to Victorian ski resorts & to locals from Albury region, direct access to south east Queensland (Brisbane, Gold & Sunshine Coasts) without having to fly through Sydney. Larger nonstop aircraft would reduce travel time & costs significantly.[citation needed]

Virgin Australia now use ATR72 Turboprop aircraft and Brindabella Airlines no longer provide a regular service between Albury and Canberra.

The airport is also served by charter, freight, agricultural, and general aviation aircraft. Until 4 March 2002 Kendell Airlines served Albury, flying to Sydney and Melbourne.
