Adelaide Airport is expanding its main terminal to significantly upgrade international arrivals and departures, and create more retail and dining options for both domestic and international travellers.

The expansion will significantly improve the arrivals and departures experience for international passengers, with a second, longer baggage belt for arrivals, more space for emigration and immigration processing, expanded security screening, a larger duty free precinct for arrivals and departures, and expanded dining and retail options.

Our retail areas will be expanded and refurbished throughout the terminal, resulting in a more than 80 per cent increase in the overall size of the terminal’s retail and dining precinct across domestic and international areas.

Other improvements:

  • A new common user premium international lounge.
  • New VIP facilities for international arrivals and departures.
  • Relocation of the Virgin Australia Lounge.
  • Expansion of office space for terminal tenants including airlines and regulatory agencies

This project is expected to support 200 jobs at peak construction, and an additional 630 direct and indirect jobs from the retail expansion.

The lead contractors are:

Architect : Baukultur

Builder: BesixWatpac

This project is funded through private investment.
