Perth Airport releases details of terminal development project

    Perth Airport released (10-Nov-2018) images of its proposal to bring all flight services into one central aviation hub featuring an upgraded international terminal and a new integrated domestic terminal. The project will see between AUD1.5 billion (USD1.1 billion) and AUD2 billion (USD1.5 billion) invested over the coming decade and will enable Qantas to complete its move to the central airport precinct by 2025. The project is slated to be delivered in two phases with the first section completed by 2024 and the second phase to be delivered at a future date dependent on passenger growth and the needs of airline partners. Perth Airport CEO Kevin Brown explained: “The first phase will include three new international gates accessed through the existing terminal building. It will provide new technological processes such as self service bag drop; improved board gate facilitation and new retail and food and beverage outlet layouts. There will also be new airline lounges which have better views and are closer to boarding gates”. Mr Brown further confirmed Perth Airport is committed to delivering the central aviation hub by no later than 2025.
