Adelaide airport overview

Adelaide Airport is the fifth-busiest in Australia, and handles approximately seven million passengers annually. The airport was established in 1955, and the updated international and domestic terminal was opened in 2005. The airport has received numerous awards, including world’s second-best international airport, in the five to 15 million passengers category, in 2006; and in the same year, it was crowned Capital City Airport of the Year at the Australian Aviation Industry Awards in Cairns.

The expansive new terminal building can cope with up to 27 aircraft, including an A380 Airbus, at the same time. There are airline lounges, 14 aerobridges, 42 desks for check-ins and 34 shops. The airport will also receive a brand-new road network and a multi-storey car park, which will more than double its current parking capacity.

The improvements are more than cosmetic – the control tower will almost double in height. Due to these improvements, more major international airlines will undoubtedly make use of the airport. Currently, these include Thai Airways International, Emirates, Etihad Airways and Qatar Airways.
