Perth Airport Makes Major Improvements to Domestic Terminals

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 1 June 2010

Major works at the front of Perth Airports Domestic Terminals are now complete with new traffic lanes and undercover walkways open to the public.

The investment of $10 million was undertaken to improve traffic flow into and out of the domestic precinct and included the construction of dedicated lanes for taxis, buses and passenger pick-up/drop-off, covered canopies providing greater protection from the weather and landscaping.

 Undertaking major works in a 24/7 airport operating environment means there will always be a level of disruption and we thank the travelling public for their patience while these works were undertaken, Perth Airport CEO Brad Geatches. Weve also upgraded and re-opened Fasttrack premium business parking which now features over 220 covered parking bays in close proximity to the terminals and is most suited for business travellers wanting a premium product ... Another major improvement well be making in the near future is the re-zoning of the forecourt to become a completely smoke-free zone for the comfort of all visitors to the domestic terminals.

Key features of the forecourt improvements include:

Designated traffic lanes for taxis, buses and the general public
Widened forecourt for pedestrian space and more room to move
Permanent passenger drop-off/pick-up lane the full length of the terminals
New eight bay taxi boarding area, saving waiting time
New covered canopies along the lanes and into the Short Term car park
New undercover Fasttrack parking, offering 227 bays (premium parking product)
Enhanced landscaped areas

 The next stage of redevelopment at the airport will take place within Domestic Terminal 3 and includes the addition of new retail and food and beverage outlets and the expansion of the current departures lounge.

 In addition to these works, by the end of 2010, the new on-airport public link road connecting the International and Domestic precincts will be open. This road will reduce the travel time between the two precincts to approximately 10 minutes and will greatly improve access and transfer options.
