Perth Airport

Perth Airport

Strategically located in relation to South East Asia, Europe and Africa, Perth Airport is Australia’s fourth largest airport in terms of passenger traffic and is the winner of the Australian Airports Association (AAA) award for Australian Major Airport of the Year for 2003 and 2004.

Only 12 kilometres from the heart of Perth, the capital of Western Australia, the airport is part of a 2,105 hectare estate with sufficient capacity to expand and meet the projected commercial aviation demand of the 21st century.

Of the 2,105 hectares, over 700 hectares is available for a wide range of non-aviation property development, providing the potential for the airport to become a major commercial and industrial centre.

Westralia Airports Corporation (WAC) also works closely with the tourism industry to develop tourism in Western Australia and is a member of the Perth Convention Bureau, the Pacific Asia Travel Association and is a gold member of the Tourism Council of Western Australia.

WAC is closely involved with Tourism WA in promoting the State as an attractive destination for overseas visitors, with a strong focus on working with airlines to increase the number of passengers travelling to Western Australia.

Perth Airport is the premier international, domestic and regional gateway to this exciting State for commercial aircraft, freight and passengers, and plays an important role in Western Australia’s economy.

Perth Airport Facilities

Perth Airport’s primary aviation facilities include:

Perth Airport has announced a $1 billion vision to deliver an outstanding new airport to the people of Western Australia.

Domestic and international services will be combined in the area around the existing international terminal. The project will take five to seven years to complete and be delivered in three phases.

Phase 1 will see a new terminal built for services within Western Australia. Named 'Terminal WA', this facility will suit fly-in fly-out workers and provide a boost for Western Australian tourism. Terminal WA will also be capable of handling medium sized jet aircraft used on interstate routes.

Phases 2 and 3 will see a major development of new domestic and international terminal facilities. A priority for Perth Airport’s designers is ensuring the fast, efficient and safe processing of arriving and departing passengers. The development will also see new airport hotels, a multi-storey car park and provision for a future public transport corridor.

While the new Perth Airport is being built, work is continuing to make sure the existing Domestic Terminals can operate efficiently. There will be better roads, more parking and a new shuttle service from the car parks to the terminals. A new public link road is being built between the domestic and international precincts to reduce travelling time.
