Adelaide Airport

Adelaide Airport is a single-terminal building that welcomes and sees off both domestic and international flights. It is currently the fifth busiest airport in Australia by passenger numbers.


The airport was built in 1955, but it underwent a huge modernisation in 2005 and was opened in October of that year by Prime Minister John Howard. It's one of a select handful of Australian airports that offers free Wi-Fi to travellers, and in 2013, it became the second airport in the world to give Google Street View cameras access inside its terminal.


The international flights available open up Adelaide to much of the world. As well as Indonesia, Malaysia and New Zealand, flights are available to China, Qatar and the UAE.


The airport is spread over three levels:

- The ground floor houses the baggage reclaim section, plus a number of ATMs and an information booth.

- The first floor has a small number of gates, plus the inbound customs section and the Singapore Airlines Lounge.

- The second floor is the hub of activities, with check-in desks and the majority of the gates and airport facilities. As well as ATMs and currency exchange services, this is where most bars, cafes and restaurants are located, and you'll also find shops and pharmacies.
