Qantas to Upgrade Perth Domestic Terminal

Travel News Asia Wednesday, 22 August 2007

Qantas is to undertake a A$50 million program of improvements to its domestic terminal at Perth Airport with work to commence by the end of 2007.

Qantas Executive General Manager Services Curtis Davies said the changes would provide enhanced facilities for passengers, aircraft and baggage services, and ensure the terminal was able to meet growing demand.

"Perth has experienced strong domestic passenger growth for a number of years due to Western Australia's economic growth and the strong performance of the resources sector," Mr Davies said.

"This has placed pressure on the airport's infrastructure and Qantas has been working with Westralia Airports Corporation (WAC) to ensure our facilities are able to cater for short to medium term needs.

"We are also working with WAC to identify sustainable long-term development requirements for the airport."

The improvements will include: expansion of the existing check-in area for departing passengers; installation of additional QuickCheck kiosks; a new security screening area to allow faster, smoother passenger flow; expansion of the departure lounge; an upgrade and expansion of the Qantas Club lounge facilities; additional checked baggage screening facilities and improved baggage handling capacity; and expansion of the baggage reclaim area.

To help alleviate peak period aircraft parking issues, Qantas will also construct a new aerobridge and upgrade a bay to provide additional wide-body aircraft parking capacity.
