Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Send to Friend ASIA Travel Tips.com Latest Travel News Friday, 2 October 2009

Westralia Airports Corporation, the owner and operator of Perth Airport, has achieved an important milestone in its expansion of Perth Airport with the completion of a major new financing process.

As part of the financing, the company has agreed new debt facilities totalling $740 million. In addition, the company’s shareholders have also committed further funding totalling $142 million. The new financing will be used to refinance existing bank debt facilities and to fund the airport’s substantial capital expenditure programme.

The new debt facilities are being provided by a total of eight banks from Australia, Europe and Asia.

“Completion of the financing provides our company the funding certainty we need to proceed with our major investments to increase capacity and customer service levels at Perth Airport,” said Perth Airport’s CEO Brad Geatches. “These funds will underpin our investment in a new domestic terminal, “Terminal WA”, and expansion of our existing international terminal, as well as many other projects that will further improve customer service at Perth Airport.”

“The fact that this major financing has been successfully completed during a period of unprecedented dislocation in global financial markets reflects the confidence shareholders and lenders have in our business performance and plans” Mr Geatches added.

Perth Airport Expansion Plans

The key elements of Perth Airport’s investment plans over the next three years are:

- A new domestic terminal designed to serve regional Western Australia and also some interstate services.

- Expanding the capacity of the current domestic terminal with new aerobridges, expanded departures and new retail.

- Redeveloping the domestic terminals forecourt to improve vehicle, taxi and pedestrian access, including covered pick-up and drop-off and covered walkways to car parks and rental cars.

- Expanding the International Terminal, including check-in, departures, bag reclaim, quarantine and five new aircraft parking positions.

- An on-airport public road linking the international and domestic terminal precincts, which will reduce the  time to transfer between the precincts to 10 minutes.
