Patricia Forsythe, executive director of the Sydney Business Chamber, said the helipad boosted the attractiveness of Sydney as a business destination.

"I'm pleased to see a proposal for a helipad and helicopter flights finally get off the ground," she said in a statement.

"It's a commonsense outcome that puts Sydney in a similar position to other renowned global cities."

London, New York, Singapore and Melbourne already offered helipads, she added.

"As we see Barangaroo come online over the next few years and it grows as a financial services hub it will go hand in hand with a direct helicopter service between the new precinct and the airport."
